I have been working since 2007 as a cartographer for various research programs in humanities and social sciences. First - and still - for the PCR on the roman ports of Narbonne and from 2009 to 2012 for the ANR Gezira on human occupation in the Nile Delta in the 4th millennium.

From 2013 to 2018, at the Digital Humanities department of the Laboratories of Excellence TransferS, I put my skills at the service of the whole humanities and social sciences laboratories of the ENS.

I joined the CNRS in 2018 at the Laboratoire de géographie physique of Meudon (UMR8591) as a project engineer in geographical information sciences. Today, I continue my works in cartography and archaeology at the Maison de l'Orient de la Méditerranée (FR3747) in Lyon.

Field of research

The great variety of data and disciplines that I had the chance to work with and the evolution of data management practices have contributed to place me as a user and observer of digital humanities: their tools are useful to me in the processing and dissemination of geographical datas; methods and concepts of cartography allow me to put their contributions into perspective.
