Compétences recommandées


I am a senior researcher at the Tampere Peace Research Institute, Tampere University, Finland. My primary areas of expertise are gender and conflicts, diaspora politics, conflict prevention and conflict analysis more generally.

As a senior researcher in peace and conflict studies I perform the following tasks:

– Coordination of a MA in Peace, Mediation and Conflict Research

– Supervision of MA and PhD theses

– Organisation and delivery of research-led teaching

– Writing of articles, book chapters, monographs, and edition of collective publications

– Participation in conferences, workshops, seminars

– Fieldwork in conflict areas

– Mentoring of young researchers

– Working at the policy research interface

I graduated from Sciences Po Grenoble in 1994, and enrolled for a PhD in Political Science at the University of Lille II. After defending my PhD in 1999, I worked for 5 years in a research centre in Paris. I was then recruited as a senior lecturer at Sciences Po Lille.

Looking for new challenges, I left a few years afterwards, in order to work as a senior lecturer at the University of Kent (UK), where I stayed for 6 years. Since 2015 I have been working as a senior researcher at the Tampere Peace Research Institute in Finland, whose profile is closer to my research interests.
