About me

I joined the University of Stirling as Professor of French and Francophone Studies in July 2019 after fourteen years in the Department of Politics, Languages and International Studies at the University of Bath.

I work on representations of difficult history, the migrant experience and multilingualism in the museum space. Between 2016 and March this year I was part of the EU-funded Horizon 2020 UNREST team working on innovative memory practices in sites of trauma including war museums and mass graves (

I teach across all years of our undergraduate programme at Stirling, acting as module coordinator for EUCU9C7, FREU9D2-D3 and FREU9CH.
