I obtained my undergraduate degree in French at the University of Namur in Belgium before joining the School of Modern Languages at the University of Louvain to complete my MA. I then obtained my MAS in Philosophy at the University of Brussels, extended with a DAAD Fellowship at the University of Tübingen. I have taught French at the Universities of Trieste, Naples, Bucharest, Vitoria-Gasteiz and since 2015 at the UoL.

I am currently Wallonia-Brussels International Fellow at the School of Arts. WBI is the agency representing French-speaking Belgians abroad. As Academic and Cultural Liaison Officer (ACLO) in the UK, my main role, with the support of the Belgian embassy, is to foster collaborations in academia and culture between our two countries. At Leicester, I also contribute to modules in French language and Francophone cultures.
