PROFILE

I believe that our research interests often reflect a little bit of who we are. As an immigrant to Canada driven by the ideals of social justice, I saw in immigration a research subject that would allow me to link the individual stories of migrants with the analysis of public policies in a comparative perspective. Originally from France, I did my graduate studies in Canada where I completed a MA in Political Science at Laval University and a PhD in Political Science at the University of Montreal. I was subsequently a SSHRC postdoctoral researcher at Sciences Po Paris and at MIT, and in 2011 joined Simon Fraser University’s Department of Political Science as an Assistant Professor. My research lies at the intersection of both of these geographical and intellectual journeys and combines public policy, comparative politics and Canadian politics.

I published articles on Canadian and European ethnic and religious diversity, in particular through the lens of public policy instruments and their mechanisms. My first book — L’intégration des immigrants: Cinquante d’ans d’action publique locale (The Integration of Immigrants: Fifty Years of Local Public Action) — has recently been published by the Presses de l’Université de Montréal and examines the cities of Montreal and Laval in the province of Québec. The funding I received from a SSHRC Insight Development Grant allows me to analyze religious pluralism, the integration of immigrants and francophone immigration outside of Quebec at different levels of political regulation. I believe in the importance of being part of initiatives that aim to not only demonstrate, but also develop, the contribution of immigration to Canadian society.
