Passionate about research in the humanities and social sciences, Larissa Kalisch is accustomed to setting up scientific studies and executing them from start to finish (writing articles, reports, publications). Statistics do not scare her thanks to her structured and square personality comparable to a Swiss clock.

She is particularly interested in topics such as quality of life and chronic pain, positive psychology interventions and positive education programs.
