Artin Arshamian is a postdoc at Centre for Language Studies (CLS) and the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. His research covers a wide range of topics including both perception and cognition in the main senses. At CLS he is exploring odour memory and the embodiment of olfaction. In addition to his research at CLS he has a postdoc position from the Swedish Research Council at Karolinska Institute in Johan Lundströms Multisensory Neuroscience Group located in Sweden. He is also one of the lead researchers of Our Unique Sense of Smell, a six-year research program studying human olfaction funded by the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences (Riksbankens Jubeliumsfond). The program is coordinated from the Gösta Ekman Laboratory at Stockholm University.  Artin Arshamian divides his time between Stockholm and Nijmegen. During his spare time he enjoys reading, looking at contemporary art, and Croquis drawing.
