Matthieu P. Boisgontier

I am a neuroscientist, a kinesiologist, and a physiotherapist. I achieved a Ph.D. from the University of Grenoble in 2012 (France). Then, I did a 6-year postdoc at Leuven University (Belgium) supported by the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO). Since 2016, I have also been using longitudinal data including tens of thousands of subjects to investigate the determinants of physical activity such as cognitive resources, neighborhood conditions, and adverse childhood events. I am passionate about physical activity, health, aging, and how the brain works but I am always happy to work on other topics.
