My research explores the psychological consequences of inequitable wealth distribution (unevenly distributed wealth within a population) and their impact on consumers' decision making. With this line of research, my aim is to (1) further our understanding of the negative consequences of economic inequality on societally relevant outcomes, which has policy implications and enables researchers to develop relevant interventions, and (2) demonstrate how a macroeconomic condition can interact with sociological and psychological variables to predict consumer behavior.

Focussing on action-perception learning and development from a combined perspective of Ecological Psychology and dynamical systems theory. Using Uncontrolled Manifold analyses and multifractal analyses to asses stability, variability, and interaction dynamics of the action-perception system. Studies exploratory processes to determine how new behaviors emerge and are stabilized during developmentand and learning. Uses a task perspective to develop serious games to train upper limb prosthetic use.

My research focuses on the effects of hearing loss and aging on voice and speech perception. During my PhD at IRCAM and the Brain and Spine Institute in Paris, I investigated the role of speaker and language familiarity on emotional voice perception, using voice transformation software. I am interested in combining behavioral and electrophysiological (EEG) measures to study different processing stages involved speech perception, from low-level perception of voice cues to higher level speech understanding.

My research focusses on speech perception, in particular on the automatic and controlled processes that enable speech comprehension in optimal (e.g., native listening) and atypical conditions (e.g., hearing impairment, CI, non-native communications). I study the interrelation between sensory and cognitive processes and the role that language experience and perceptual plasticity play in shaping this relation.
