Short Biography

I was trained in Psychology at University Paris Descartes (Paris V). I obtained my Master’s Degree in Cognitive Sciences at Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris (CogMaster: http://sapience.dec.ens.fr/cogmaster/www/). I am now doing a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology and Neuroscience, co-supervised by Prof. Christian Lorenzi for the psychoacoustics part and by Prof. Ian Winter (http://www.neuroscience.cam.ac.uk/directory/profile.php?imw1001) for the physiology part.

I spend my time between Paris and Cambridge and my research focuses on the peripheral processing of the temporal features of sound.

 

Research Interest

Title of my Ph.D.: Effects of cochlear damage on temporal modulation coding – psychoacoustical and physiological approaches

My Ph.D. focuses on the processing of the temporal structure of sounds by the normal and impaired auditory system in both humans and animal models. I study the auditory perception of two types of temporal modulations of the acoustic signal, the temporal envelope and temporal fine structure, using various approaches (psychophysics, computer modeling and electrophysiology).
