Research interests:

  • I am interested in neurodevelopment in all its aspects, especially regarding the cognitive processing. During my research activities, I am also focused on the effects that maternal metabolism has on the developing offspring. With a background in cognitive and neuropsychology, I worked mainly with EEG, fNIRS and MEG.

Current projects:

  • At the fMEG Center, Tübingen (DE), my project consists in studying the ability of infants and children to detect regularities in sequences of sounds through investigation of EEG, fNIRS and pupil dynamics. My main goal is the set-up of fNIRS-EEG brain imaging in newborns and children, and to conduct studies relating brain activity to body composition and metabolism. I am also exploring the neurovascular coupling in premature infants using bimodal EEG-fNIRS recordings, in cooperation with INSERM U 1105 at the Université de Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens (FR).
