I received the Ph.D. degree in physics from the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in 1995, with a study on temporal processes in quantum mechanics. My current research activities are focused on the foundations of physical theories, quantum mechanics, quantum cognition, and consciousness studies (self-research). I'm currently research fellow at the Center Leo Apostel for Interdisciplinary Studies (CLEA), situated at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Belgium (VUB), director of the Laboratorio di Autoricerca di Base (LAB), in Switzerland, editor of its journal AutoRicerca, and president of the company Area 302.
