About Me

Originally from France, I was born near Paris and moved to Luxembourg a few years later where I grew up. After spending four years in London for my undergraduate degree, I migrated north to beautiful Scotland to pursue a PhD in Edinburgh. I then moved back to mainland Europe for a postdoctoral fellowship in Bern, where I got to explore the wilderness of Switzerland (and eat cheese and chocolate). After three years, I recently moved across the Atlantic to conduct a new fellowship in Montréal and discover the wonders of Canada.

I love travelling and discovering new places around the world (the perks of academia!). My hobbies include hiking, skiing and sailing, as I enjoy spending my free time outdoors. I'm also a big tennis fan, and have been a keen player for many years.
