I am currently a group leader at ICM (team Motivation Brain and Behaviourand an honorary fellow at the TNU.

I am interested in how the brain learns and makes decisions. I am also designing computational approaches for inference on complex systems.

Visit this page for a summary of my current research directions. And here is my CV.



The BRAiN'US project:


BRAiN’US is a smartphone app gathering 8 fun tests, which we have designed to decompose the way the brain makes decisions.

Let's crowdsource brain experiments!
