About Me

Welcome !

I am a PhD Candidate in French at Emory University, and my interests lie at the crossroads of North, West and Central African literatures, visual arts, ecology, and ecocriticism in 20th and 21st centuries. I am particularly interested in the way visual arts reframe and re-conceptualize the ecological world.

Before starting my PhD, I was a  Fulbright Teaching Assistant at the University of Maine and I completed a MA in American literature and a double BA in French literature and English at the University of Strasbourg, France. Born and raised in the Mediterranean area and culture, I studied in the East of France, in Strasbourg before moving to the US. These different spaces encouraged my passion for languages and led me to become a French instructor today.

Out of the classroom, I enjoy outdoors activity, such as hiking or plant-potting. I am also an adept of collages.
