Welcome to my website.
I successfully defended my PhD in English literature at Sorbonne Université (Research Center VALE -- Voix Anglophones, Littérature, Esthétique), with a dissertation written under the supervision of Pr. Pascal Aquien. My work focuses on Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the Pre-Raphaelites and their relationship to Victorian modernity, along with the socio-political and philosophical ideas outlined by their paintings and poems. I also teach BA and MA students in English studies and Applied languages at the Université Gustave Eiffel.
