Research Fellow

Research topics:

  • Memory and learning
  • Frontal lobe
  • Brain-mapping & connectivity
  • Interindividual variability

Methodological topics:

  • Behavioral decoding: quantitative approaches for inferring behavioral role of brain regions
  • Brain structure-phenotype covariance
  • Brain cartography: multimodal connectivity-based parcellation

I am primarily interested in understanding memory-informed decision-making and self-related believes formation at the brain level. I first used hypothesis-driven approaches such as psychophysiological interaction (PPI) in task-based fMRI, as well as cognitive-morphologic (based on structural MRI, sMRI) and cognitive-metabolic (based on PET) correlations in clinical populations. I then adopted a bottom-up approach capitalizing on data-driven methods. My research work currently focuses on the development of neuroimaging approaches for inferring behavior role of brain regions, in particular in the frontal and medial temporal lobes. This work capitalizes on task-based activations data (fMRI/PET), cognitive-morphologic (IRMs) correlation and prediction approaches applied to resting-state functional connectivity (RSFC) and DWI-derived anatomical connectivity.
