Since January 2020, I am a lecturer in contemporary history of humanitarianism at the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute. I joined HCRI in 2017 as a postdoctoral fellow of the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah in Paris. I hold a History PhD from Université Lumière Lyon 2 and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). My dissertation has received the Fondation Auschwitz (2018), the French Association for Canadian Studies (2018), the International Council for Canadian Studies (2019), and the UQAM’s Faculty of Humanities (2019) best doctoral thesis awards. I am currently developing a new project on age and migration control in Britain and France, in collaboration with the John Rylands Research Institute and the Centre for the History of Science Technology and Medicine in Manchester.
