Paris Cité University
Ania has been recruited as an associate professor in developmental psychology at the Institute of Psychology at the Paris Cité University (Paris Descartes) in 2015. After graduating in Neuropsychology in 2010 she conducted her PhD at the LaPsyDÉ under the supervision of Sylvain Moutier and Mathieu Cassotti in 2013. She then carried out a one-year post-doctorate at the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California under the supervision of Antonio and Hanna Damasio. Her current research focuses on the development of perspective-taking abilities in children and adolescents. She is particularly interested in the role of inhibitory control as well as the influence of emotions and social context on these perspective abilities.
She has been the co-head of the training center for school psychologists since 2018 and the co-head of DEV Master since 2020.
