Iris Menu


Ph.D student

Paris Cité University

After obtaining Bachelor's degrees in both Psychology and Mathematics (Paris Descartes, 2016) and a Master's degree in Psychology of the cognitive and social development of children and adolescents (Paris Descartes, 2019), Iris began her PhD at LaPsyDÉ in October 2019 under the supervision of Arnaud Cachia. With a CNRS 80 PRIME grant for interdisciplinary projects, Iris is working on the APEX project funded by ANR and studies the impact of executive learning on children and adolescents using a multi-level environment-gene-brain-behaviour approach. To do this, she uses methods from mathematics and data science such as structural equation models, network analysis and machine learning.
