Driven by my curiosity about human movement, I embarked on a journey in physiotherapy, culminating in M.PT and B.PT degrees from Université Laval, Qc, Canada (2012-2016). My motivation was rooted in empowering individuals to reach their fullest potential.

I completed a M.Sc in clinical research from the same institution, where my work focused on novel electrical and magnetic stimulation interventions to enhance motor drive.

Determined to influence the therapeutic landscape through high-quality research, I chose to pursue my PhD with the neurophysiological experts at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), affiliated with the University of New South Wales (UNSW, 2023-2027). My projects, supported by the University International Postgraduate Award (UIPA, UNSW), and the Fonds de recherche Santé Québec (FRQS), focus on the use of transcutaneous spinal stimulation to help restore motor function in individuals with spinal cord injuries. A key clinically relevant aspect of this research is to involve people with lived experience as part of the research team.
