I am an historian of warfare and languages who completed a PhD at the EHESS Paris under the joint supervision of Christophe Prochasson (EHESS Paris) and John Horne (Trinity College Dublin) on languages in Allied coalition warfare during the First World War. Since September 2015 I have been working at the English department of Sorbonne Université, Faculté des Lettres, as part of the HDEA research group.
I like to call myself a French historian with British and German nationalities. After secondary school in Germany and a B.A. in England I have lived and worked in Paris on and off since 2005, first spending three years at the École Normale Supérieure while gaining a Masters in history at the EHESS (obtained in 2007), and then working on my PhD.
I currently teach British History and IT Skills to students working towards English degrees at Sorbonne Université. In the past, I have taught German and Anglo-American Historiography seminars, methodology courses, as well as quantitative history and IT skills to budding historians in various settings. See the blog I run jointly with Emilien Ruiz: La boîte à outils des historiens.
