I am doing my PhD in cognitive science at the Département d’études cognitives of the Ecole normale supérieure (ENS-PSL). I am working within the Evolution and Social Cognition Group at the Institut Jean Nicod, under the supervision of Nicolas Baumard.
I use behavioral ecology, evolutionary psychology, cognitive neuroscience and both computational and experimental methods to explain the psychological foundations and the cultural evolution of fictions.
I focus on people’s preferences (how and why they evolve, how and why they differ between indinviduals and populations) to explain the entertaining content features in fictions.
I am in charge of the digital communication of the International Society for Fiction and Fictionality Study.
