Monique graduated from McMaster University with an honours BSc. in Psychology, Neuroscience, and behaviour specializing in music cognition. She was co-president of the McMaster Music Cognition Society and a member of the McMaster University Percussion ensemble. Her thesis work dealt with tapping production in different effectors and its influence on timing perception. Thus extending the research she completed as part of a USRA project in the summer of 2013 on inter-limb coordination and timming.
She is now taking on her role as Lab Manager for the SMART Lab.
