I’m a cognitive neuroscientist currently using neuroimaging techniques in farm animals to investigate: 1) how early environment influences behavioural and neurobiological development and 2) social perception and its underlying neural mechanisms.

Since November 2017, I have been a researcher (Chargé de Recherche) at the PRC (Physiologie de la Reproduction et des Comportements) research unit in Nouzilly, France.

Also check out the INRAE Farm Animal Cognition and Welfare network that I help to animate.
