    I have a PhD in Cognitive Neuropsychology from the university of Toulouse III in France where I was working with Dr JF Demonet and Dr P Celsis. I moved next to Finland (Prof R. Salmelin) then Glasgow (Prof B Belin) where I was respectively post-doc fellow and post-doc RA. In 2007 I joined the Brain Research Imaging Center in Edinburgh as fMRI lead for SINAPSE (Scottish Imaging Network A Platform for Scientific Excellence = coordination of some fMRI activities across Scotland). I am now Academic Fellow, teaching fMRI/EEG and researching in the areas of language and categorization with a focus on methods and clinical applications (brain tumours, stroke).

    I finished my first degree at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands where I studied Biology with a specific interest in Developmental Biology and Molecular Biology. As part of my MSc degree I did two extensive research projects at the University of Utrecht, namely a 6 months project in the group of Prof Tony Durston at the Hubrecht Laboratory and a 9 months project in the group for Developmental Biology under supervision by Drs Andre van Loon and Wim Dictus. I followed this with a PhD in Molecular Biology, again with a specific interest in Developmental Biology, at the Hubrecht Laboratory under the supervision of Prof Christine Mummery and Dr Franck Lebrin. I then moved to Edinbugh, Scotland in 2005 where I started working as a research technician in 2006 in the group of Prof Colin Duncan at the Centre for Reproductive Biology, Univerisity of Utrecht. In 2008 I joined the group of Prof Richard Sharpe as a Career Development Fellow at the MRC Human Reproductive Sciences Unit. In 2011 I became a senior postdoc in Prof Richard Sharpe's group at the MRC/UoE Centre for Reproductive Health within the University of Edinburgh. In September 2016 I started my current position as an academic track lecturer within the Deanery of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Edinburgh.
