Biography

Dr. Thibaut’s PhD studies were with the Coma Science Group under the direction of Prof. Steven Laureys, at the University of Liege, Belgium, where she currently has a FNRS post-doctoral position. She obtained her masters degree in Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation with a specialization in Neuroscience from the University of Liege in Belgium. Her research focuses on brain direct current stimulation in patients with disorders of consciousness trying to improve brain plasticity and facilitate the recovery of these patients. She is also working with neuroimaging and electrophysiology to objectify brain plasticity linked to stimulation. Additionally, she is on the leadership team for the treatment subgroup of the IBIA DOC-SIG with Drs. Carolyn Schnakers and Nathan Zasler serving as chairs. She closely collaborates with Prof. Filipe Fregni and the Spaulding Neuromodulation Centre, Harvard Medical School, Boston, with working on new non-invasive brain stimulation techniques to improve brain function by enhancing cortical activity and connectivity in diverse conditions such as concussion and chronic pain
