About me

Hello world !

I hold a PhD in Social Sciences & Humanities with a Master’s degree in Computational Social Sciences, and have extensive work experience in academia, private and non-profit sectors.

As an independant researcher and narrative practician, my work revolves around the following areas of expertise:

  • narrative-based practices
  • partnerships & relational networks
  • open science & society
  • PhD career development.

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you want to collaborate on:

  • launching or coordinating participatory research projects
  • writing, editing and reviewing academic content
  • hosting career development webinars or workshops for PhDs and entrepreneurs
  • acquiring skills to build, manage and mediate within communities to foster diversity and inclusion
  • advocating for health rights for childhood cancer survivors.

I live and work in France, which is why a lot my blog posts are in French.

Like what you see?

Let’s talk, I’m be happy to explore collaboration opportunities!

Au plaisir ! 🙂
