Biographical Details

I was educated at Paris 12 Val-de-Marne (France), where I graduated and obtained an MA in History. I am still a student at this University. I first came to Ireland as an Erasmus at NUI Maynooth in 2004 and came back for my PhD. At QUB, I am a visiting postgraduate research student.

Research topic

For my PhD, I am working on the representations of France in the Irish nationalist press from 1871 to 1921. Dr Marie Coleman is providing supervision during my time at Queen's. More generally, I am working on the Franco-Irish relationships for this period from the Irish point of view (which is, you will not be the firsts to tell me this, a surprising perspective for a French, but none the less essential for this field of research). I am particularly focusing on the post-1880 period.

I worked also on the Franco-Irish relationships for the 1830-52 period (first year of Master thesis).
