I am a PhD student supervised by Delphine Oudiette and Thomas Andrillon.
I have always been curious about sleep research, and which brain processes are hidden under the many different conscious states between wake and sleep.
I graduated from a Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences research degree at Rouen-Normandy University, where I gathered expertise on a great variety of subjects around neurosciences.
I did an internship at the Neuro-ergonomy and human factor department at the ISAE Supaero, Toulouse under the supervision of Mickaël Causse. I devised a tool to assess psychophysiological state and mental workload in real-life settings (e.g. the cockpit of a plane).
I integrated the Dream Team in January 2021, under Thomas Andrillon’s supervision for my second year of master’s internship. During six months, I studied volition in luciddreaming, collaborating with Delphine Oudiette, Stephen Laberge and Benjamin Baird. I studied signs of premotor planification before two kinds of lucidity codes in lucid dreaming: Left-Right-Left-Right ocular codes and facial (zygomatic and corrugator) contractions.
I am currently studying the cognitive consequences of sleep intrusions on wakefulness and their implication for education. My goal is to strongly characterize sleep intrusions during waking in a specific population of patients at the Sleep Disorders Department (Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital). Then I aim to broaden the studied spectrum to the general population in ecological settings. Finally, I will study the link between sleep intrusions, attention and education in real life settings.
