Biography

Personal webpage: www.martinszinte.net

In October 2012, I obtained a Ph.D. in cognitive science at the Université Paris Descartes under the supervision of Patrick Cavanagh. My thesis was on the perception of space across eyes and head movements.

I next spent three years at the Ludwig-Maximilians Universtät of Munich funded by a postdoctoral research fellowship of the Alexander van Humboldt foundation. There, I notably established with Heiner Deubel different measures of the deployment of visual spatial attention across eye movements. Later, I obtained funding by the German research agency (DFG) as a principal investigator to supervise doctoral and postdoctoral students on projects linking attention, memory and oculomotor processes.

In August 2017, funded by a Marie Skłodowska Curie postdoctoral fellowship, I worked with Tomas Knapen at the Spinoza Centre for Neuroimaging and the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. This second postdoctoral period allowed me to acquire functional neuroimaging methods using ultra-high field (7T) applied to the study of visual spatial cognition.

Since August 2019, I’m working at the Institute de Neurosciences de la Timone in Marseille working with Guillaume Masson and Anna Montagnini. This postdoc will allow me to combine my knowledge of oculomotor mechanisms to my expertise in functional neuroimaging methods in order to understand the human predictive cognitive mechanisms in play in our everyday perception. Moreover, this period allows me to anchor my work in an internationally competitive French institute in order to join the CNRS as soon as possible.

My research focuses on eye movements, space constancy, multi-sensory integration, visual spatial attention and working memory. I study these topics combining innovative behavioral (psychophysics), physiological (eye movement tracking) and hemodynamical methods (3T & &T fMRI).
