Annemarie Schumacher Dimech, PhD

My strong interest in mental health issues started in Malta where I read for a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. I then went on to study health psychology at the University of Surrey (UK) and after that spent a couple of years working with children with mental and/or physical disability. I moved to Switzerland in 2005 and read for my PhD at the University of Bern. Since my move to Switzerland, I have mainly worked in research and teaching in the area of health and exercise psychology, my main interest being the effect of our emotions, thoughts and behaviour on our mental health.
