Postdoctoral researcher

After a Master’s degree in Disability Rehabilitation Engineering, mainly focused on the study of motor control, I subsequently specialized in cognitive Neuroscience. During my Ph.D., under the supervision of Drs. Alain Guillaume and Jean Blouin, I was interested in studying the fundamental processes underlying visuo-motor transformations and how this can be applied to Neuro-ophtalmological clinical practice and elite sport. Currently, in the Psychophysics and Visual Perception laboratory, with Professors Jocelyn Faubert and Delphine Bernardin, I’m working on the interactions between these visuo-motor processes and the perceptual-cognitive abilities during ecological tasks such as car driving and “on-field” performance in athletes.
