Thesis topic : As a PhD student, I used an evolutionary approach to investigate brain and behavioural mechanisms at play in human and non-human primate species for the perception of affective vocalizations. For that purpose, I conducted several comparative studies on humans that included various techniques such as fNIRS, fMRI or acoustical analyses. Thanks to a Doc.mobility fellowship at the University of Aix-Marseille (France ), I also conducted the first fNIRS experiment on baboons. I successfully defended my PhD thesis in September 2020. Since this date, I am a post-doctoral researcher at the CISA. I am actually working on the processing of vocal and gestural production in humans and non-human primates using fNIRS and behavioural data.
