President and founder of the CogLab, NeuroTechX Paris

CogLab is a non profit association: an experimental and alternative laboratory, dedicated to the exploration of Cognitive Sciences, at the crossroads of Open Science, DIY philosophy and the Digital Art.

Deeply convinced of the contribution of third-places, true incubators of social and societal innovation, I actively contribute to their development to build bridges between institutions, companies, associations and citizens.

I was inspired by my non-profit activities during my studies in Cognitive Science and Interaction Engineering (University of Lorraine), followed by first experience in Start-up like AirBoxLab at La Poudrière, coworking space in Nancy, France.

At the same time I was involved in the development of La Paillasse, Fresco (federation of students and active people in Cognitive Science) and NeuroTechX in 2013.
