about my experience

So far, most of my career has been spent in the U.S., and Canada, I feel pretty fortunate to have had a chance to hold positions in several organizations across the world (China, France, U.S., Canada, Haïti). I also feel very lucky to have had a chance to be part of international institutions that have helped me develop (Salzburg Global Seminar, Harvard, ZBW-Leibniz to name a few) and to do field research in Japan, Israel, South Africa, China, Brazil, etc. Learning, growing and meeting different cultures in this transformative time is what I really like.
