Education

Danny Dukes obtained a Masters degree in Social and Economic History from the University of Edinburgh in 1997. He subsequently moved to Germany to work as an educator with people with intellectual disabilities and/or autism. He then accepted a post for several years at a psychiatric institute in Switzerland, initially as an educator and then as a psychologist. In 2004, he obtained a Graduate diploma in Psychology from the University of Sunderland. It was while working as the coordinator of a programme to help reintegrate children with severe behavioral difficulties into the school system in Geneva, Switzerland that he obtained a Masters degree in Psychology from the Open University. He subsequently worked as coordinator of the validation project of 'vis-A-vis', a cognitive remediation programme that principally treats affective processing and emotion recognition in children and adolescents with autism and autism-like symptoms.Danny started his doctorate at Neuchâtel in December 2011 under the supervision of Fabrice Clément at the Cognitive Science Centre at the University of Neuchâtel, spending one year (2015-2016) in the Infant Studies Centre of Joseph J Campos at UC Berkeley.
