Ph.D student

Paris Cité University

After obtaining a master's degree in Psychology of the cognitive and social development of children and adolescents at the University of Paris Descartes, Emma started a PhD at LaPsyDE, under the supervision of Pr. Grégoire Borst. Her research aims to determine whether high intellectual potential is characterized by a greater efficiency of executive functions, and more particularly to determine the existence or not of a developmental pattern of inhibition in this population.
