My main research interests focus on memory and its cerebral underpinnings, especially using functional connectivity and resting state networks. I completed my PhD in January 2016 at UR2nF/CRCN, under the supervision of Pr. Philippe Peigneux. During my PhD, I investigated the neurophysiological mechanisms subtending learning and memory consolidation in healthy ageing, using magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG).
From November 2016 to October 2019, I conducted a post-doc under the supervision of Dr. Pierre Gagnepain at the U1077 Unit (Neuropsychology and Imaging of Human Memory – NIMH, Caen, France), headed by Pr. Francis Eustache. This research project aimed at identifying the structural and functional neurobiological markers promoting resilience in individuals exposed to the 13th November 2015 Paris terrorist attacks.
Since November 2019, I came back at the UR2nF/CRCN, with a FNRS fellowship. The aim of this research project is to investigate the relationships between sleep architecture and functional and structural connectivity, using a multimodal approach, to better understand the brain processes that contribute to success or decline of procedural memory consolidation in healthy ageing.
