After an engineering degree in agrifoodbusiness with a specialization in Applied Statistics (Agrocampus Rennes-INSFA) and a master's degree in school health education, I completed a PhD in education entitled "factors influencing the implementation of a health promotion approach in French primary schools " supervised by Dr. Jeanine Pommier (EHESP) and Prof. Didier Jourdan (University Blaise Pascal, IUFM Auvergne, Laboratoire ACTé-EA4281).

At the same time, I had worked in different structures in the field of public health and health promotion: ANSES (ex-AFSSA, French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety ), the UNIRèS Network (formerly Teacher training institutes’ network for health education), the University Blaise Pascal - Clermont-Ferrand 2 and the International Union for Health Promotion and Health Education (IUHPE).

I have been working at the EHESP as a research fellow, from January 2013 to August 2015. I was in charge of a programme for research and sharing best practice focusing on the employment of people with disabilities in the public sector, from national, European and intrenational perspectives.

Since September 2015, I am an Associate Professor working on health promotion issues.


So far my research themes have been focused on school health promotion, health promotion evaluation and the use of mixed methods research. They are today moving towards disability, employment and occupational health. In this new perspective, I try to make connections with the concepts of social participation and capacity building of stakeholders, common to the fields of health promotion and disability, always trying to combine qualitative and quantitative approaches.


At the moment, my teaching activities are mainly focused on the use of mixed methods and qualitative methods in evaluation. I am also teaching health promotion and issues related to the employment of persons with disabilities.
