I joined the BAND-Lab as a post doc at its founding in 2015.
My work focuses on the functional and neural mechanisms underlying the ability to adapt the timing of motor and non-motor cognitive behaviour to a dynamic environment. Within this broader context I am particularly interested in the role and the interplay of classical motor structures such as the cerebellum, the basal ganglia and the supplementary motor area in auditory temporal processing and the optimal allocation of attention in time. I use EEG to investigate the modulation of several electrophysiological markers (ERPs, oscillatory activity) by timing manipulations, as well as structural MRI in healthy and patient populations to differentiate the contribution of specific structures to these mechanisms.
