I am currently working at the Laboratory of Brain and Cognition (LBC) lead by Dr. Leslie Ungerleider (NIH/NIMH, Bethesda MD, USA).

I previously worked at:

  • the FRONTLab team led by Pr. Bruno Dubois and Pr. Richard Levy, in the group of Dr. Antoni Valero-Cabre (Brain and Spine Institute - ICM, Paris, France)
  • the CNBS laboratory, directed by Pr. Alvaro Pascual-Leone (Harvard Medical School/BIDMC, Boston MA, USA)
  • the IRIS laboratory, directed by Dr. Zoï Kapoula (Paris, France)

My research focuses on the role of cortical networks in visuomotor control and in conscious visual perception. I am using a combination of neuroscience methods (fMRI, EEG, TMS, psychophysics) in Humans.
