Charles-Étienne Benoit

PhD, Post-Doctoral Researcher

charles etienne benoit 140x180Charles-Étienne completed a PhD in Psychology (Oct 2010 – Dec 2015) at the Max Planck Institute (Leipzig, Germany), where he investigated the motor rehabilitation of patients with Parkinson’s disease. He then joined the CoActions lab in January 2016. Since then, he has run several research projects with the main goal to better understand the role of fatigue in decision-making.
