Research interests

My research interest focuses on Burial Reform Discourse in Nineteenth-Century England (c. 1830-1880).

I am a member of the Centre d'Histoire du XIXe siècle (EA 3550) at the University of Paris-Panthéon / Sorbonne and also a member of the Cemetery Research Group at the University of York.

Conference Papers

  • 'A Grave for a Terrorist: Jihadist burials. Implications of Related Legislation for French Society' - (CDAS Conference June 2017, Death at the Margins of the State, University of Bath)
  • 'George Alfred Walker's Gatherings From Graveyards: Burial Reform Discourse in Mid-Nineteenth Century England' - (18th Colloquium on Cemeteries May 2017, University of York)
  • 'The Impact of the Reformation on the Burials of Catholics and Quakers in Early Modern England' - (The Europeaum Graduate Workshop April 2017, Religion, Conflict, Secularism and Tolerance: 500 years after Wittenberg, University of Oxford)


I teach French language for 1st and 2nd year students, to be more precise Grammar/Translation and Essay classes.

I have taken part in the creation and implementation of online grammar exercices (Perception), reading and listening coprhension exercises which students use to consolidate their knowledge and grammar skills.

I also worked for the Language Center and taught MBA/MIM French Beginners in Term 1 of 2016.

In 2014-2016, I was a lectrice in charge of 1st, 2nd and 4th year Oral classes. I also marked 3rd Year Abroad Essays.


I was commissioned to translate 3 papers given at an international colloquium at the University of Lille on 'Le Royaume de Naples à l'heure française. Revisiter l'histoire du Decennio Francese, 1806-1815.' The papers are to be published by Presses du Septentrion in early 2018.
