I am an Associate Professor at the European School of Political and Social Sciences (ESPOL) in France, where I teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses on environmental governance, development studies, and food/agricultural politics (see teaching section). As the Director of Master’s Programmes, I oversee ESPOL’s postgraduate programs with approximately 50 students and involving 15 lecturers. I am also a member of the Global Environmental Justice Group (University of East Anglia, UK), an interdisciplinary group of scholars interested in the linkages between social justice and environmental change.
I have a PhD in Political and Social Sciences from the Centre for Philosophy of Law (UCL) on environmental justice and biodiversity conservation. I obtained my Master’s degree in Environmental Studies from the Free University of Brussels (ULB).
