About

I am a PhD Student at Birkbeck, University of London (Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development), under the supervision of Natasha Kirkham and Denis Mareschal. I work on the effect of ambient noise on early learning (elementary school). This project is also carried out in partnership with Cauldron company, based in Cambridge: data is collected using interactive testing platforms.

I have validated, in 2016, a Research Master in Cognitive Science at the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris & Paris Descartes University. The research projects I have carried out were on the development of reading skills among primary school pupils, (ENS Ulm & Grenoble Alpes University), on science learning in middle school (Center for Educational Neuroscience) and on the moral judgment of 5 to 9 years-old children (ENS Ulm).

I try, as much as possible, to interact with teachers and lay people. The associative project, Cogni'Junior, allows me to transmit basic knowledge about cognitive science, and to discuss about its potential impact on educational methods.
