After obtaining a master in private law (penal law option) from the Jean MOULIN Law school (Lyon 3), I passed the inspector of health and social action competitive examination and undertook the course at the ENSP (former EHESP) from 1999 to 2001. I then held 2 inspector jobs in Picardy and then Ile-de-France, and then passed the principal inspector exam in 2006 before applying for the lecturer-researcher in inspection methodology at the EHESP in 2007.

I followed the master 2 Steering public health policies and actions (PPASP) co-accredited by the EHESP-Sciences po Rennes in 2010 and 2011.

I work since2014 for a PhD with the following thesis subject : articulation of different modes of regulation around establishment quality process : inspection, accreditation, evaluation.


I presented a dissertation in 2012, within the framework of the PPASP master 2, on the integration of new inspectors and controllers within regional health agencies (HPST legislation dated 2009).

I also wrote an article in 2011 for the Revue Générale de Droit Médical (RGDM) on inspection within the framework of the HPST legislation.

My current research is geared towards the articulation of quality processes used within health, social and medical-social establishments and services, especially the relationship between inspection reports and evaluation reports that the establishments undergo and the State and town services must take into account in the follow-up of establishments.
