Research Scientist, Principal Investigator

Parietal, INRIA Saclay

I am an experimental psychologist by training and work as research scientist at (INRIA). One of my big questions is: How can we improve clinical practice in neurology and psychiatry? With my team, we address this question by bringing research in computer science and neuroscience into medical applications. Over the past seven years, I have specialized in large-scale data analysis and predictive modeling with brain data i.e., electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Most of my work can be described using three dimensions: (i) empirically derived proxy measures of brain health and mental health, (ii) statistical methods and algorithms for analyzing brain data at the population scale, (iii) open source tools for analyzing neural time series.

For an overview of my current research please consider my latest recorded talks e.g. my lecture at The Neuro.
