I completed my undergraduate studies in Life Sciences and carried out experiments in electrophysiology at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute. For my Ph.D. studies, I joined the MICA lab at the Montreal Neurological Institute, where I am currently investigating human relational memory by analyzing behavioral and neuroimaging data in healthy adults and patients with drug-resistant epilepsy. For my CONP project, I designed and openly shared a multifaceted functional MRI task battery for assessing the episodic, semantic, and spatial dimensions of relational cognition.
My research project focuses on human relational memory in both healthy and diseased populations. I have developed a memory assessment protocol consisting of various tasks designed to examine different forms of memory, which I administer to participants inside the MRI scanner. Leveraging performance scores on the various tasks in addition to structural and functional brain markers, I implement state of the art analytical techniques to understand the neural organization of relational memory as well as its reorganization due to brain lesions.
