Brief Description of Research Interest :
My work is mainly focused on characterizing brain function in rare genetic (such as cystinosis and 22q11.2 deletion syndrome) and neurodevelopmental/neuropsychiatric disorders (such as schizophrenia). More specifically, using EEG, I probe sensory indices, investigating auditory and visual processing, and executive function. My current aims are focused on the development of objective neural biomarkers for interventional work and capable of, for instance, predicting risk or tracking progressive changes over the course of a disorder.
