She was trained as a postdoctoral fellow in neuroscience at the Atomic Energy Comission (France) and at the Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care (Toronto). She is researcher at the CHU Sainte-Justine Hospital (FRQ-S junior 1) and assistant professor at the psychology department of the University of Montreal. Her research focuses on brain development and learning in healthy children and infants, as well as factors influencing these processes. Further, she investigates different pathologies and their effects on cerebral, cognitive and affective development, such as benign childhood epilepsy, febrile seizures, leukemia and intellectual disability. The investigation methods in her research lab named “Neuroscience of Early Development lab” include structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging, electrophysiology (EEG/MEG) and behavioural measures (eye tracking, neuropsychological evaluations).
