I completed my Bachelor of Psychology and my Master of Neurosciences and Behavioral Sciences at UNICAEN, France. As part of my master thesis, I had the opportunity to expand my research skills at the Cognitive and Affective Sciences Lab (Scalab), in Lille, France, where I developed and conducted a study using a newly acquired functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS).  Furthermore, I created a comprehensive tutorial for future fNIRS users.

In 2016, I started my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Didier Grandjean at the Neuroscience of Emotion and Affective Dynamics lab (NEAD) and the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences (CISA). The goal of my thesis is to collect behavioral and cerebral data using fNIRS to investigate how humans understand their emotions in an evolutionary approach. Following this perspective, I recently obtained a one year of funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation to pursue my research on non-human primates at the University of Marseille, France.
