Research scientist CNRS (chercheur CR2 CNRS)

Born on the 15th of March 1983 in Rumst (Antwerp - Belgium). I earned my MA in psychology (Theoretical and Experimental Psychology) at the University of Ghent (Belgium) in 2006. Afterwards, I moved to Barcelona (Spain) where I received another MA in Cognitive Neurosciences and Language in 2007. In 2007 I started my PhD ("The Electrophysiology of Language Production: Lexical Access in Picture Naming") at the University of Barcelona and I received my PhD title in Cognitive Neuroscience and Language in February 2012. After my PhD I became a Marie Curie post-doctoral fellow of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) at the Laboratoire de Psychology Cognitive (LPC) in France, where I explored the role of intention and goal-directed behavior in language processing with neurophysiological techniques such as ERPs and MEG. Since 2014 I am a full-time CNRS researcher at the Laboratoire Parole et Langage (LPL) in Aix-en-Provence. In my research I attempt to bridge traditional linguistics and psycho-linguistics with neuroscience. In this manner I aim to understand how complex cognitive behavior as language production and comprehension can be explained in terms of basic neurobiological properties of the brain and its neural code. My main topics of research: 1) The spatiotemporal dynamics of language production and comprehension; 2) The role of top-down attention and goal-directed behavior in language processing; 3) The neural representations of words in the monolingual and bilingual brain.
