I received my PhD in Social Anthropology from the Université de Montréal in 2005 and my MSc in Anthropology from the Université de Montréal in 1996. I also received a post-graduate diploma in management from the École des Hautes Études Commerciales in 1998 and a post-graduate diploma in anthropology from the University of Sydney in 1993. Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked as a consultant in international development project and program evaluation. Since September 2013, I am the French language editor for Anthropologica, the journal of the Canadian Anthropology Association.
My research has focused on the moral economies of humanitarian action and the sociocultural dynamics of post-disaster reconstruction, namely in Central America. I have been interested in topics relating to the politics of community participation and social inequality, theories of gift and exchange, disaster studies and the political economy of hope in salvational practices. I am currently interested in new transnational and transformational endeavours of ‘doing good’ based in entrepreneurial values and their relationship to economic solidarity practices and discourses.
I am willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of development studies, humanitarianism, the sociocultural analysis of disasters and reconstruction, social entrepreneurship and contemporary expressions of economic solidarity. I am also able to supervise students with a strong interest and disciplinary training in anthropology.
