Welcome to this page!
I am currently a Pro Futura Scientia IX Fellow at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study in Uppsala, Sweden.
I hold an M.A. and a B.A. in History with distinction from the University of Strasbourg, France. I completed a Ph.D. in History at Purdue University, United States.
Before coming to SCAS, I was a Max Weber fellow at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, and a research post doctoral fellow at Umeå University and Lund University, Sweden.
The title of my Ph.D. dissertation is, “Women in Rural Society: Peasants, Patriarchy and the Local Economy in Northeast France, 1650-1789”.
My research interests range widely, from the history of justice and economics to gender and women’s history. Above all, I am deeply interested in the study of rural communities in early modern Europe.
