My resume

Version Française


You are on the personal page of Maxime Cauté.

I am studying Cognitive Science at the CogMaster (ENS-PSL), and have a Computer Science background from the École Normale Supérieure, in Rennes, France.

My main topic of scientific interest is the phylo- & ontogeny of language ability. I thus aim to specialize in this topic with an interdisciplinary PhD mixing Psycholinguistics, Computer Science and Neurology. I am currently doing an internship supervised by Stanislas Dehaene and Mathias Sablé Meyer, which I hope to continue next year as a PhD student.

Besides cognition, I also take interest in history and game design (which involve cognition to some degree), and like sharing knowledge on these topics. To vulgarise history, I take part in historical reenactment with the 16e Régiment d'Infanterie Légère. I also work voluntarily as a programmer for the open-source science-based video game Thrive , in which the player competes against evolution to thrive as the very first forms of life.
