I graduated from the École normale supérieure (rue d'Ulm, Paris) and received my PhD in Political Science from Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne University. Before joining Queen Mary University of London, I worked at the French Ministry for the Armed Forces' Institute for Strategic Research (IRSEM), and previously at King's College London. My research focuses on European integration and European security. I have published in particular in the Journal of European Public Policy, JCMS: Journal of Common Market Studies, Survival and European Security. My opinion pieces have appeared in newspapers such as Le Monde, El País, European Pravda, EUobserver and EURACTIV.
