I studied French literature at the University of Aix-Marseille, Faculté de Lettres modernes, earning a BA, Licence ès Lettres.

My interest in 18th century literature in a comparative perspective, led me to take a MA in English literature (University of Aix-Marseille, University of Oxford). My MA thesis focused on narrative structures and philosophical debates in Sterne and Diderot. I have since linked the fields of narratology and translation studies when reflecting upon “manipulations” in translations; the translator being the writer of a new text for readers of the target text.

I completed my PGCE at the University of Warwick and taught for three years in Secondary education before joining the Language Centre where I am Teaching Fellow in French.
