About me

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Cambridge. I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of British Columbia, Canada, in June 2019. I act as editorial assistant to the francophone co-editor at the Canadian Journal of Political Science

My work looks at the relationship of liberalism with land and land appropriation in modern and contemporary political thought. More specifically, I examine the ideas that helped advance territorial expansion in the consolidation of British settler states. I challenge the legacy of these ideas for contemporary liberal states and societies by exploring questions of land sharing and exploitation. 

My research and teaching interests include political theory, history of political ideas, liberalism, ideologies of empire and colonisation as well as Quebec and Canadian political development.
