I am a neuropsychologist and translational neuroscientist. My main interest is the identification and exploration of the cultural, cognitive and neural mechanisms at play in social cognition, in other words, the cognitive processes that allow us to navigate the social world and apprehend the daily social life. Beside this basic goal, I am to develop new diagnostic and assessment tools for brain diseases, in a clinical perspective. In that context, I am especially interested into cognitive neurodegenerative diseases and especially frontotemporal degeneration which has been the focus of my researches from the start.
Currently, I'm working as a Research Associate Professor (“Chargé de Recherche Inserm”) at the Lille Neuroscience & Cognition Institute, University of Lille & National Institute of Health & Medical Research (Inserm) since October 2018. I am also working as a neuropsychologist at the Lille Memory Clinic of the Lille Hospital, France. In Lille, I'm working to depeen the cognitive, neuroimaging and behavioral features of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Frontotemporal degeneration within the Inserm team "Cognitive Vascular and Degenerative Disorders" and the hospital's Lille Memory Clinic.
Besides, I'm a honorary Senior Lecturer at the Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia and serve as chairman, expert or coordinator in several international expert consortium such as the International Network on Social Cognition Disorders, the SIGNATURE Initiative and the NIC-FTD (Neuropsychiatric International Consortium – Frontotemporal Dementia), which underlines the collaborative nature of my studies.
