About me:

I’m a PI at NeuroSpin (CEA Saclay, France), as well as the manager of the DIP (Deep Imaging Platform). I’m using multi-photon imaging to study the detailed neural mechanisms of the encoding of abstract representations in macaque monkey PFC, as well as the top-down effects of these representations on early visual areas.
