Research Themes

I am a memory researcher specialising in cognitive neuropsychology. I work with patients and with healthy populations in order to better understand the human memory system with the ultimate goal of better helping people in psychological distress or with cognitive impairment. My research is almost exclusively focussed on episodic memory. My research tends to cluster into two main themes : subjective experience of memory and autobiographical memory. One theme which I have been researching a lot recently is déjà vu. I’ve also been heavily involved in research using wearable cameras for memory rehabilitation.
