Pascale Lidji was a postdoctoral scholar in the Sequence Production Lab., McGill University, from 2009 to 2012, where she worked under the supervision of Prof. Caroline Palmer. She now works as a clinical neuro-psychologist.

Pascale Lidji owns joint PhD in psychology from Université Libre de Bruxelles and Université de Montreal. Her dissertation, supervised by Prof Régine Kolinksy and Prof. Isabelle Peretz, addressed the interactions between music and language in sung stimuli. In her postdoctoral project, conducted under the direction of Prof. Caroline Palmer in collaboration with Prof. Isabelle Peretz, she investigates the perceptual and motor processes involved in synchronization with speech and song. Using behavioral methods and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), she also explores the beneficial effects of choral speech and song on word production in aphasic patients.
