My research interests are primarily concerned with defining the neural network involved in language comprehension (semantics and syntax). I investigate this area by analysing source reconstruction of EMEG data (Electro-Magnetoencephalography) to allow precise spatial and temporal resolution of the process under scrutiny. I combined multivariate analyses (RSA: Representational Similarity Analysis) with functional connectivity (PLV: Phase Locking Values) to reveal the transient coupling of functional networks that support specific computational processes in spoken language comprehension.

I hold a PhD in Psychology from Geneva University (Switzerland) and a Master degree in Cognitive Neuroscience from University of Marseille (France).
