A PhD candidate in Plasticity of cortical auditory circuits at the Institut de l’Audition. As a scientist, Olivier enjoys knowing his stuff ahead of everyone else. When it comes to communicating his science, Olivier’s goal is for even his grandma to understand his explanations. In the lab, he always has a little bottle of Port wine on his desk, in case of emergency and would not survive without his 4 pm snack. Olivier’s favourite book is The Pillars of the Earth, written by Kent Follet and his big dream is to someday discover the origin of consciousness.
