After two BSc degrees in Sport Sciences and Psychology, I undertook a Masters in Cognitive Psychology. After obtaining my Masters degree, I started a PhD in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Grenoble, France), funded by the French Army). After I completed my PhD in January 2010, I was awarded a Swiss postdoctoral fellowship for my first postdoctoral position at the Polytechnic School of Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland).
In parallel with this postdoctoral position, I obtained a teaching fellowship at the University of Besançon (France). Following these two positions, I had the opportunity to delve further into my research with a second postdoctoral position at the University of Manchester, in collaboration with the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney. Then, I had the opportunity to find a position of Course Leader and Lecturer in Psychology at Open University - Newham University Centre. Since September 2016, I have been a Senior Lecturer and Course Leader of the BSc (Hons) Psychology of Fashion. I am also a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society and a HEA Senior Fellow.
Body image, vestibular physiology, multisensory perception, motion sickness.
My main research interests involve psychological and psychophysiological features related to body image, sensory integration and illusions, and motion sickness:
