I am currently a Post Doc at the Équipe de Neuropsychologie Interventionnelle at the Department of Cognitive Studies of ENS in Paris.

I am interested in phonology, phonetics, speech perception and in the cognitive neuroscience of language. My 2010 MIT dissertation focuses on the perceptual effects of stress on segmental contrast, and how they condition phonological processes.

I have recently started working on the role of the sub-cortical areas in language processing, studying morpho-phonological deficits in patients affected by Huntington’s Disease.
