Jordi Quoidbach got his Ph.D. in 2010 form University of Liège in Belgium. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher in Psychology at Harvard University. His primary research interest lies in understanding how the human capacity to travel through time to relive the past and to envision the future shapes our happiness in the present.
