Research Interests:

          My work aims to understand perception (perceptual grouping), attention, memory, categorization and concept formation processes in nonhuman primates. My main species of interest is the baboon, though cross-species studies are also conducted in a comparative perspective. See my behavioral research protocols here

          Je m'intéresse à cognition du primate non humain en adoptant une perspective de psychologie comparée. L'espèce étudiée est le babouin, mais des collaborations m'amènent à étudier d'autres espèces ainsi que des sujets humains.
