I am a cognitive and biological psychologist with a Master’s degree from the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands). During my Ph.D. at Riken BSI (Tokyo, Japan) I used psychophysics and eye-movement recordings to study context effects in vision, and located their neural correlates using MEG. As a post-doc at EPFL, Switzerland, I set up an EEG laboratory and mastered EEG source-imaging techniques to study dynamic visual processes in healthy subjects, and in aging and schizophrenic populations. I then received an SNSF Ambizione grant to work at the University of Geneva, where I improved and validated the Granger-causal modelling approaches and applied them to study directed cortical interactions during sensory processing in humans and animal models. My current work is funded by an SNSF professorship grant.
