Current Professional Activities



   As far as my formation is concerned, one could say that I have been in school since the age of three, when I started in preschool. It looks like I will still be in school when I retire! In my career, I have attended or worked at four different universities.

   My university training has focused on the experimental aspects of psychology.

U de M   I completed my Bachelor (B. Sc.) and Masters (M. Sc.) degrees at the Universite de Montreal under the supervision of Olga E. Favreau. The title of my Master's thesis was Relation entre le genre, le role sexuel et la performance a un test verbal et a un test verbal (Relation between gender, sex role and performance on a spatial test and a verbal test).

 U of Waterloo

  I completed my Ph. D. in Cognition/Perception at the University of Waterloo under the supervision of the late M. P. Bryden (Dr. Bryden passed away in August, 1996). The title of my Ph. D. dissertation was Gender, level of spatial ability, and individual differences in the lateralization of spatial skills.
