My main role in the research project is to create new objects adapted to help to daily lifes of patients with resistant OCD. I contribute to a novel approach in thinking about the environment of such patients. As a team (with the patients and other researchers), we aim to reduce the impact caused on their quality of life as well as on their social relathionships. In order to do so and relieve the patient from their OCD, we find solutions for which I design and create the appropriate objects for the patients.

I’m interested in the pathophysiology of obsessive compulsive disorder and schizophrenia. Currently working on both OCD patients and a mouse model of OCD (SAPAP3 KO), exploring the neural mechanisms underlying the compulsive behaviors via the optogenetics and electrophysiological recording techniques.
