I am an IT Engineer specialized in Decision Support systems, groupware and knowledge management with 5 years of experience in private sector as Software Engineer.
In September 2008, following my passion for humain brain and mind, I wanted to conduct researches, and I started a Master Degree in Cognitive Sciences in Grenoble, under the supervision of Marco Congedo at the Gipsa-Lab where I was introduced to EEG and neurofeedback, and trained on Blind Source Separation and Brain Computer Interfaces.
In October 2012, I finished a Ph.D. in cognitive neurosciences under the supervision of Arnaud Delorme at the CerCo, in Toulouse, France.

In 2014, I completed a first postdoctoral experience at the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique (LSCP), in Paris, under the supervision of Sid Kouider, where I worked on Brain Computer Interfaces, Visual Perception and Motor Response, as well as EEG system design.
I am now postdoct at the Laboratoire de Psychologie et NeuroCognition (LPNC) in Grenoble, under the supervision of Hélène Loevenbruck, to work on Innerspeech project which aims at bringing new inputs in the understanding of the "Little voice in our heads".
For more details on the Innerspeech project, have a look there.
