CNRS Post-Doc Fellow, Cerco (CNRS-UT3)

I’m a postdoc at Cerco, in the team Crossmodal Compensation and Cortical Plasticity (C3P).

I obtained my graduate degree in Cognitive Sciences from the Cogmaster in Paris, before doing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience with Olaf Blanke (Ecole Polytechnique de Lausanne, Switzerland). Since then I worked as a postdoc with John J. Foxe (Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY), Fred Lado (Montefiore Medical Center, NY) and now Celine Cappe (Cerco, France).

My general interest is to understand the orchestration of neuronal integration with a specific interest in neuronal oscillations. To this aim, I am studying the influence of cognitive functions (attention, memory … ) on multisensory interactions using psychophysics and electrophysiological approaches in human.
