I am an art historian specialising in cultural transfers, historiography (19th-20th century) and translation. I received my PhD from the Université Paris III Sorbonne Nouvelle and Queen Mary in 2014, and I published my thesis (Nikolaus Pevsner: arpenteur des arts, Paris: Démopolis) in 2015. In 2015-17, I held a postdoctoral fellowship in Historiography of Art at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Strasbourg, where I coordinated the Dictionnaire culturel de Strasbourg 1880-1930 (Strasbourg: PUS, 2017) and contributed to the exhibition Laboratoire d’Europe as an author for the catalogue and an expert on art and culture in the city at the turn of the 20th century.
