I serve as a UN Press Officer at the United Nations, New York City.

Formerly, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, researching European Union politics, institutional discourse, and crisis communication, and a Lecturer (Professeure associée) at the University of Liège where I taught EU politics and crisis discourse to graduate students. I also provided advice as a consultant on public speaking, online teaching, and research storytelling.

I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science - with the additional title of Doctor Europaeus - and an M.A. in Communication of international organizations from the University of Liège. Additionally, I will graduate from Johns Hopkins with an M.A. in government, security studies, and intelligence in 2026. 

I speak three languages and have extensive international experience: I lived in 5 countries in Europe and 3 cities in North America, and worked in various multicultural environments.  I gave lectures at several European and American universities.
