Perceptual content and Categorisation

I am currently a PhD student in the Institut Jean Nicod, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris (doctoral school ED540). My research is supervised by Uriah Kriegel and financed by Paris Sciences et Lettres (PSL).

Research project : I'm working in philosophy of mind, with a focus on perception and categorisation. My current PhD research project consists in investigating whether or not conscious visual experiences present objects as instances of a particular categories and thereby developing the study of the relationship between visual consciousness and categorisation process.

My two master internships focused on the subjects of synaesthesia and perception and were done in the Institut Jean Nicod and at University of Glasgow under the supervision of J. Dokic, F. De Vignemont and F. Macpherson. I also had the opportunity to do a 2-months internship in the Laboratoire des Systèmes Perceptifs (CNRS, ENS) under the supervision of D. Pressnitzer and J. Lorenceau on the subject of detection of visual pattern.

I also hold a Master's degree in Management and Finance of innovation (Neoma Business School).
