After completing the CAPES training in Lettres Modernes in 2007, she has been a French teacher at Ministère de l'Éducation nationale, France since 2008.
Under the direction of Professor Claudie Bernard and Professor Michel Bertrand her doctoral research focuses on the writing of perception in Laurent Mauvignier's work. Her thesis explores the digressive making of the paradoxical "écriture du présent" which mixes temporal, memorial and sensorial strata through the here and now horizontalities and the palimpsest verticalities of History.
