PhD researcher in Social Sciences

I am a French political psychologist and PhD researcher at the Leuven School for Mass Communication Research (University of Leuven, Belgium) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Laura Vandenbosch. My PhD project entitled Politics Undercover: Understanding the Role of Social Media and Entertainment Fiction in the Development of the Political Self in Adolescence uses a multidisciplinary approach to the study of political development as it combines communication, political and psychological sciences. My PhD is part of the ERC-funded MIMIc project: “Malleability in mediated ideals: A paradigm to understand effects of contemporary media in adolescents’ well-being”.

Apart from my work, I spend a lot of time attempting to make sense of my inner and outer worlds through writing, including poetry and letters, and all sorts of readings ranging from philosophy, religion, ethics to psychology, politics, etc. I love art, spending time in nature, dancing and I studied in several countries. I am a fervent enthusiast of all things newsletters and I  sometimes feel anxious about all the things I will never have the time to learn. Mental health topics are very important to me and I do my best to encourage discussions around them. Welcome!
