About Me

Doing a PhD in Anthropology in Central Africa, among the Baka Pygmies. At the University of Barcelona (ICTA - UAB)

I was born in the north of France where I studied Geography. Travelled a lot in Asia, lived in Brussels and then in Paris during 3 years, studying Ecological Anthropology at the National Museum of Natural History.
I was leaving in the countryside, in the idea to keep a strong link with manual activities (gardening, art, ceramic), then I went to Cameroon for one year to live in a forest village among the Pygmies, in order to study human-animal relations, hunting techniques and conservation issues.

I am now on writing my Phd dissertation....
