I am tenured Research Associate (Chercheur Qualifié) with the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS) and Research Professor at UCLouvain (Belgium). I teach master’s courses in Environmental Sociology (UCLouvain) and Environmental Politics (Sciences Po Paris) (see teaching section). I am the current Chair of the JUSTES research group on social and ecological justice and an organising committee member of the French Environmental Justice network.

I have previously worked in the UK, at the University of East Anglia and at Lancaster University, and in France, at Lille Catholic University, where I taught undergraduate and master’s courses on environmental politics and on critical food/agricultural studies. From 2016 to 2020, I was also a member of the Global Environmental Justice Group in the UK.

My teaching and research interests are focused on environmental politics and environmental justice, on biodiversity conservation, and on critical food studies. I am an interdisciplinary trained scholar; my academic path led me to study and/or work in faculties and departments of successively computer science, environmental science, (philosophy of) law, international development, and political and social sciences. I hold a PhD in Political and Social Sciences from the Centre for Philosophy of Law (UCLouvain) on environmental justice and biodiversity conservation. Before that, I obtained a MSc degree in Environmental Science and a BSc degree in Computer Science. I provide service to various disciplinary and interdisciplinary organizations, including the UN-hosted Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity (IPBES), and have consulted for the European Commission, the Belgian government, and the UK House of Commons. I have also acted as as a reviewer for different research bodies such as the French National Research Agency, the US National Science Foundation, and the Leverhulme Trust among others.

My work has also featured in the press, with references in Reuters, Le Monde, Politico, and op-eds in La Libre, Le Soir, and The Conversation among others (see News&Opinions section for examples).
