I am a professor working in Université de Savoie and in the LPNC (CNRS UMR 5105).
I am a Junior Member of the Institut Universitaire de France
I am primarily interested in cognition, and more specifically in psycholinguistics and reading.
My main findings (obtained with my collaborators) are the following:
- Consonants are more important than vowels during lexical access in reading
- Letters are perceived as taller than pseudoletters, words are perceived as taller than pseudowords
- Subtitle frequencies are better predictor of reading times than written frequencies
- Blogs and Twitter frequencies are good alternative to book and subtitle frequencies
- This previous result is another demonstration that phonological representations are very important during reading
- Latent Semantic Analysis is an efficient way to determine automatically word predictibility during reading
