As a French and Swiss citizen, I am a member of several associations dealing with Archeology, Art History and Anthropology in both countries. I taught Art and Archeology of Ancient Greek for several years at the Paris Nanterre University. Since I attach great importance to high standards of scientific mediation geared towards a large audience, I started out as facilitator within the association. Nowadays, I actively support a wide range of their activities.

Curious about various scientific disciplines and keen to get involved in the associative sector, I wanted to participate in the ArkéoTopia adventure, to expand my knowledge in Archeology and Social Science. I help the association by managing different tasks: administration, photographic reporting, preparation of materials, etc.

Being keen on history and archaeology, I joined ArkéoTopia with great interest: another way for archeology, offering a different approach to archeology from that practiced in France, and passionate activities. I bring my viewpoint and my knowledge to ArkéoTopia, cultivated by varied experiences and digs in France and abroad.
