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
