I am currently a postdoctoral scientist in the laboratory of Prof. Ueli Rutishauser in the department of Neurosurgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where I use single-unit recordings and fMRI in human epileptic patients to investigate social cognition and memory. I have a visiting appointment at Caltech, where I continue to collaborate with my previous postdoc advisor Prof. Ralph Adolphs.
I have worked on many topics since the onset of my neuroscience career, such as unconscious vision, attentional selection, the representation of concepts in the brain, face processing, and social cognition. I have experience with many methods, such as psychophysics, electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), and single-unit recordings. I earned a PhD in Computation and Neural Systems from Caltech, where I was mentored by Prof. Christof Koch (now Chief Scientific officer at the Allen Institute for Brain Science). I also earned a PhD in cognitive neuroscience from Universite Paul Sabatier in France, where I was mentored by Dr. Rufin VanRullen at the Centre de Recherche Cerveau et Cognition (CERCO).
