Axelle Calcus recently joined the faculty of Psychology and Education as an assistant professor at Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB). She completed her PhD in 2015 on speech perception in noise in children with dyslexia. Since then, she has traveled the world as a postdoctoral researcher working on the neurophysiological correlates of speech perception in noise in adults (Boston University), neural encoding of speech in children with hearing loss (University College London) and the neural processing of amplitude modulation detection in the presence of distractors (Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris). Her current research projects focus on the mechanisms that support the protracted development of speech perception in noise in children, and their relationship with academic performance.

Axelle Calcus is a supervisor of the research project 15. The phonological body – body movements to accompany linguistic development in deaf children
