Louise Goupil

Louise Goupil joined the UEL BabyDevLab in April 2020 as a post-doctoral researcher. She leads the JDIL project, funded by an H2020 Marie Curie fellowship, in which she investigates early word-learning from a dyadic perspective, using a combination of behavioural methods and dual EEG.

Louise’s research focuses on the (meta)cognitive and social mechanisms that support communication and transmission in humans. She is also interested in how communication shapes conscious perception and metacognition (& the other way around), and in the parallels and differences between vocal, musical and linguistic communication. During her PhD in the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris (FR), she studied young children’s ability to communicate their doubts. She then joined IRCAM/CNRS (Paris, FR) as a post-doctoral researcher, where she studied vocal communication and coordination during musical improvisation. She is now a CNRS researcher at the LPNC / University Grenoble Alpes (FR).
