CV


I am primarily a learning psychologist, also interested in neural networks and cognitive control. Some of my specific research interests include human contingency learning, temporal contiguity, temporal learning, the Stroop effect, computational modelling, cognitive control, conflict monitoring and adaptation, attention, episodic memory, unconscious processes, learning goals, evaluative learning, stimulus-response binding, switch costs, human reasoning ability, logic, and bilingualism. I completed my B.A. with high honours in psychology and a minor in philosophy at the University of Saskatchewan in 2005, supervised by Jim Cheesman. I obtained my Master’s in 2007 and my Ph.D. in 2009 in cognitive psychology at the University of Waterloo, supervised by Derek Besner. I then worked as a postdoc at Ghent University with Jan De Houwer. I am currently an associate professor of the Université Bourgogne Franche-Comté (UBFC) working in the Laboratoire d'Etude de l'Apprentissage et du Développement (LEAD) at the Université de Bourgogne. You can see my full CV here.
