Research fellow at CNRS

Welcome !

I'm currently a research fellow at French CNRS in cognitive sciences and language sciences. My research investigates the influence of body (sensory-motor systems) and environment on language and spoken communication. I'm studying how motion adaptations and coordinations are set-up to support the interactions with human and technological environments. I'm considering behavioral changes according to the context and over time as a behavioral window towards the cognitive processes that underlie language and communication.

ANR-DFG SALAMMBO (Spoken lAnguage in motions: Learning and Adaptation of speech coMMunication in the context of BOdy motion)

I'm a co-PI of this project with Susanne Fuchs. The project started in 2018. It will investigate the speech-breathing-limbs motion relationships in the learning and adaptation of spoken communication. More information about the project: here.

The ComEns project

The ComEns project focuses on communication skills in people with Down Syndrome. I'm a co-leader of the project with Marion Dohen. More information about the project:

ANR An@tomy2020

This project is led by Jocelyne Troccaz at TIMC lab. It investigates how body motion can improve the learning of anatomy. More information about the project:
