I am a postdoctoral researcher at the "Neuropsychology and Imaging of Human Memory" unit (NIHM) in the University of Caen (France). My researches focus on the brain-body interactions supporting memory, emotions and forgetting, both from computational and psychopathological perspectives.


I completed studies in both Philosophy and Applied Mathematics in Grenoble (UPMF). I obtained a Master’s degree in Cognitive science at the University of Lyon 2 where I specialized in Philosophy of Mind, and a second Master's degree in the University of Caen with a specialization in neuropsychology.
