Since Janu­ary 2018, I have been an Assist­ant Pro­fess­or (Wis­senschaft­lich­er Mit­arbeit­er) at the depart­ment of philo­sophy of the Uni­ver­sity of Duis­burg-Essen and a mem­ber of the Philo­soph­ic­al Anthro­po­logy and Eth­ics Research Group, led by Neil Rough­ley. Before com­ing to Essen, I have held pos­i­tions at the Uni­ver­sity of Geneva, the Uni­ver­sity of Montreal, and the Uni­ver­sity of Neb­raska at Omaha. I hold a PhD in philo­sophy from the Uni­ver­sity of Manchester. I was born and raised in France.

I cur­rently work at the inter­sec­tion of philo­sophy of mind, action the­ory, and eth­ics. In par­tic­u­lar, I am inter­ested in the nature of emo­tions and the role they might play in our prac­tic­al lives. I have also been devel­op­ing an account of love and our reas­ons for it, which has led me to tricky issues about the value of indi­vidu­als and the vari­ous ways we might relate to it.
