My research practice is interdisciplinary. After obtaining a PhD in political science at the Paris IEP, I joined the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, as a post-doctoral researcher in a collective project combining anthropology and sociology, before joining Aix-Marseille University. My work focuses on migration, migration policies and social movements. I mainly research these issues through fieldwork conducted in southern Mediterranean countries, particularly in Algeria and Tunisia. I set up large-scale research mechanisms that combine a wide variety of sources and methods. I increasingly use images and sound in my ethnographies.
