Associate Professor in History at the University of Nantes (ESPE) and doctor in modern history. Tenured researcher at CREN and affiliated researcher at TEMPORA (Rennes II). My research concerns the history of the French Revolution, the history of the civil service (18th-19th century) and the history of political territories. I also undertake research in the didactics of history, particularly on the link between the mediation and education, a central concern of AMuLoP.

My work relates to the social history of the suburbs, capitals and urban politics and is based on an interdisciplinary approach to urban studies.
