Cambridge Research Scientist
Amandine holds an honorary research position in the Cambridge University Autism Research Centre, and with Dr Helen O’Reilly led the EU ASC-Inclusion Project developing an online game to teach socio-emotional skills to children with autism. During her PhD at the University of Waterloo in Canada she investigated the impact of facial expressions on attention to gaze at the behavioural and at the EEG level. She also explored the association between autistic traits and the ability to integrate gaze and emotion signals. During her MSc in the Brain Mind Institute (EPFL, Switzerland) she investigated whether adults with autism activate brain regions involved in empathy to the same extent as typical individuals.
