Web CV

I received my PhD in Psychology specializing in Behavioural Neuroscience from the University of Toronto (Toronto, Canada) and became interested in Cyberpsychology during my postdoctoral training at Laval University (Quebec City, Canada). I am broadly interested in the function of interpersonal physical contact in social interactions and its role in development and well-being. I am currently focusing on studying how individuals use virtual spaces and other digital social technologies to connect and to simulate physical closeness, and the role of these interactions in well-being.

I'm a graduate student at Université Laval (Quebec City, Canada). In the context of my thesis, I am investigating whether empathy is expressed and perceived in the same way in a face-to-face setting in comparison to a videoconference setting. Additionally, I'm interested in how interacting in cyberspace by means of restricted communication channels impacts how we perceive and reach out to each other. Ultimately, I hope my research will enhance our understanding of the daily impact of cyberspace on the ways we communicate with one another.
