About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher in cognitive neuroscience at the Brain, Body, and Self Laboratory (Group Ehrsson), in the department of neuroscience.

Research description

I am a cognitive neuroscientist and experimental psychologist interested in the role of consciousness in cognition. More specifically, I am interested in the neural processes involved in the detection and recognition of visual information, e.g. faces and their emotional expressions, and in multisensory integration as in the experience of body ownership, e.g. experiencing one's hand as our own and not as an external object. To achieve this, I use psychophysics, psychophysiology, and electroencephalography. In addition, I am also interested in the neural underpinnings of hypnosis and meditation, and in the contribution of hypnosis research to the understanding of consciousness, metacognition, and perception. Finally, I am also interested in the clinical applications of consciousness and perception research, especially for the understanding of psychiatric disorders.
