I joined the Department of Psychology in September 2014 after graduating from a life science engineer school (Rennes, France) and completed a master degree in Ethology and Ecophysiology (University of Strasbourg, France). I worked in the Centre for Comparative and Evolutionary Psychology for a year, focusing on non-verbal communication and more specifically facial expressions in various species. I am now a certified FACS coder in six different species (Human, Macaques, Gibbon, Orang-utan, Dog, and Cat). I have been involved in various projects, from cultural differences in facial expression in children to cognition in primates. I previously worked on spatial cognition in desert ants, in Pr. Ken Cheng’s team (Macquarie University, Sydney-Australia), and on social cognition in Titi monkeys (Callicebus cupreus) for Pr. Karen Bales at the California National Primate Research Centre (Davis, CA-USA).

I am funded by the Leverhulme Trust, on the grant ‘Cultural variation in the social function and expression of guilt’ awarded to Dr Bridget Waller and Prof Aldert Vrij (July 2016).

For my PhD, I will be working under the supervision of Bridget Waller, Aldert Vrij, and Erik Gustafsson.

Over the past three years I have been funded by:

  • The University of Portsmouth- PhD Departmental Bursary
  • Leverhulme Trust funded bursary, on the grant awarded to Dr Bridget Waller and Professor Aldert Vrij, 2016

My PhD research focuses on social cognition and non-verbal communication in humans. I aim to explore the impact of guilt on social relationships across cultures in order to try understand to what extend our interactions are biased and controlled by this emotion.
