Visual information encoding
As part of my neurosciences master I took two internships with Béchir Jarraya at the CEA of Saclay which introduced me to complexity of the primate brain and to several imagery techniques like fMRI and EEG. I worked for 6 months on a project aiming to help patients suffering from a consciousness disorder (e.g. coma). We successfully modulated the wakefulness of an anaesthetised monkey using thalamic deep brain stimulation.
Later I continued to explore cognition in the primate brain by taking another placement in Masud Husain’s lab at the University of Oxford. There, I worked on a working memory project in humans. I used EEG to better understand how informations about several items would enter in working memory.
Finally, over the last year, I worked for Matthew Rushworth and Jérôme Sallet as research assistant. My responsibilities included to train macaques to perform decision making tasks in an fMRI environment. I was also in charge of data preprocessing and early steps of analysis.
Outside of academic research I also have an interest for industry and scientific consulting. Last year I notably obtained a master in Strategy and International Management. I am particularly interested in start up development and in how investment funds or institutions identify tomorrow's big challenges. Therefore I am very excited to be joining Kristine Krug’s lab in an iCASE project in partnership with the start up Cambridge Neurotech. The project has for aim to create a neurostimulation protocol of the non-human primate visual cortex in order to better understand the encoding of the visual information. Hopefully we will become able apply the data we will generate to create a device which will provide a solution for visually deficient patients
