About me

My research is mainly focused on aging and human memory. Most of my studies are conducted within grounded and situated cognition frameworks. These approaches incorporate the influence of our body and of the current context in cognitive processing, which give a new angle to explore cognition.

Becoming a member of the LAPSCO (LAboratoire de Psychologie Sociale et COgnitive) represents a great opportunity to further develop the social dimension associated with my research themes. For instance, we study the attitudes toward older adults impact of psychology students, or how the stigmatization of the Alzheimer’s disease impacts the performance of the patients.
