I work as a hospital engineer in the Neurosurgery department, University-hospital of Clermont-Ferrand, since 2011. I am particularly interested in Cognitive Neuroscience and Brain Imaging.

I am a PhD student since 2015, studying the functional connectome of consciousness with patients presenting chronic disorders of consciousness.
