    I am a psychologist (MSc in Cognitive Psychology, MRes in Neuropsychology) and I have a PhD in Cognitive Neuropsychology from the university of Toulouse III in France where I worked with Dr JF Demonet and Dr P Celsis at the National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM). During that time I studied, vision, language and dyslexia using EEG and functional MRI. I moved next to Finland working with Prof R. Salmelin at the low temperature laboratory on vision and language. I deepen there my understanding of neurophysiology working with MEG - and started my journey into programming. I moved next to Scotland, 1st at the University of Glasgow (Prof B Belin) where I was respectively post-doc fellow and post-doc RA. While working on categorization mechanisms (voice, language) I was also in charge of building the lab. I next joined the Brain Research Imaging Center at the University of Edinburgh as fMRI lead for SINAPSE (Scottish Imaging Network A Platform for Scientific Excellence) coordinating of some fMRI activities across Scotland. I became Academic Fellow, and Senior Academic Fellow when all imaging activities merged into Edinburgh imaging - being the scientific contact for all functional imaging studies. During that I have been teaching fMRI/EEG/Statistics and researching in the areas of language and categorization with a focus on methods and clinical applications (brain tumours, stroke). Thanks to my ever growing interest in open science, programming and reproducibility (and a fellowship at the Software Sustainability Institute) I am now a Senior Research Software Developer at the Neurobiology Research Unit, Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet in Denmark, still working on brain imaging and methods, but also building tools for data sharing and automated, reproducible data analyses.
