Research and Teaching

I studied International Relations at the University of Sciences Po in France, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts with a specialisation on Middle-Eastern studies and a Masters in International Security. My studies at Sciences Po included a year abroad at the University of Bath, UK, where I attended different modules in the Department of Politics, Languages and International Studies.

Having grown up in a bicultural and bilingual environment, I am interested in the way languages facilitate cultural exchanges and how important they are when it comes to international affairs and diplomacy.

In the French Department, I give oral classes to undergraduate students, at Sub-Honours and Honours level."
