EEG; Psychophysics; Gamification; Script-based statistics


Using behavioural and functional neuroimaging approaches, my Ph.D. focuses on the neural underpinnings of training-induced plasticity in executive functions and how such trainings can modify behaviour.

I am mainly working on developing and validating a neurophysiologically-informed gamified intervention for behavioural change, notably for improving healthy eating habits ('The Diner'). This intervention follows state-of-the-art gamification processes to create a rewarding and challenging environment (link to the software page).

In parallel, I am also developing tools and pipelines on Matlab and R to promote reproductible experimental methodology. This work includes a software for automated EEG signal pre-processing; an outlier detection pipeline for the GNG, Flanker and Nback task; statistical power analyses using Monte Carlo simulations.
