FC_May2017Welcome to my website!

I’m Fabienne Chetail, a  professor at the faculty of psychology and education at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB).

After completing a Ph.D. at the University of Bordeaux in November 2008, I came to Brussels for a post-doc in the Lab Cognition Language & Development (LCLD). In October 2014, I permanently joined the faculty and the LCLD as well as the Center for Research in Cognition & Neurosciences (CRCN) and the ULB Neuroscience Institute (UNI). Since May 2018, I’m the head of the LCLD. Regarding research, very briefly, I am interested in the mechanisms of reading and written word processing. Currently, I’m investigating the impact of print exposure through reading on the creation of new lexical representations (novel word learning) and on the reinforcement of different low- and high-level reading processes.

Please, note that in 2023-24, I’m on sabbatical (reduced academic and teaching duties, with focus on research).
