I’ve been working for Fondation La main à la pate since 2012 as project coordinator. Since then, I’m in charge of creating synergies between educators and researchers (cognitive science, neuroscience, and education). I also develop pedagogical resources for teachers (primary and middle school) and contribute to the professional development for teachers and teachers’ trainers in topics such as: cognitive science, learning and the brain, critical thinking. In September 2016, I’ve been appointed national coordinator of the Networks of Innovation sector.
I currently develop my research activity as associate member of the Institut Jean Nicod (Ens, EHESS, CNRS). Institut Jean Nicod is an interdisciplinary lab at the interface between cognitive,humans, and social sciences. It is one of the research labs of the Institut pour l'étude de la cognition (IEC) of the Ecole normale supérieure (Paris)
My domain of research is the philosophy of cognitive sciences and m
y research interests are in mind-brain-behavioral studies and their application to domains ofsocial interest, namely: education, the media and technology.
Science and society
I'm interested in the reflection about translational research, or: how to translate basic knowledge into usable knowledge and, finally, applications.
Translational research in education
I'm interested in the development of evidence-based and science-informed models and in their application to education.
Believability and illusions
A further aspect of my research concerns research on illusory phenomena.
