I am a postdoctoral researcher specialized in autobiographical memory and future thinking research, with a particular interest in the cognitive and neural underpinnings of these cognitive domains, as well as the relationships between autobiographical memory, future thinking and the self. My work involves clinical and healthy populations, and combines cognitive and experimental psychology, clinical neuropsychology and neuroimaging. My research activity in this field has started during my PhD (2010-14), supervised by Prof. Lilliann Manning at the University of Strasbourg (France), which was followed by a one-year postdoctoral position (2014-15) at the University of Burgundy (France) with Prof. Chris Moulin and Dr. Céline Souchay and by a second post doc as a Marie Curie COFUND postdoctoral fellow (2015-17) with Dr. Arnaud D’Argembeau at the University of Liege (Belgium). Since October 2017, I am working with Prof. Chris Moulin and Dr. Céline Souchay on a research project on prospective memory in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, funded by an ANR research grant.
