I am Associate Professor of International Politics at the Department of Political Science at ULiège. I am also Programme Director of the Master in Global Politics & Political Affairs. Before joining the Department in September 2022, I held a postdoctoral research position at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and was a Wiener-Anspach Visiting Scholar at the University of Oxford. I received my PhD in Political Science from ULB in October 2018, which focused on a political sociology of NATO's counterterrorism professional networks, practices, and policies after 9/11.

My research interests are situated in the areas of Critical Security Studies and War Studies, and I draw upon the works of structural sociologists such as Bourdieu, Elias, and Tilly, as well as the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS). My current research focuses on the historical sociology of Western organized violence, with a particular emphasis on recent counterinsurgency and counterterrorism campaigns conducted in the context of the War on Terror. I have also developed an interest in the role of secrecy in defense politics and research fieldwork, the militarization of migration control in the Mediterranean Sea, and the social origins of weapons and military technologies. My book, La fabrique de l'OTAN: contre-terrorisme et organisation transnationale de la violence, was published by Editions de l'Université de Bruxelles in 2021. My work has also appeared in academic journals such as Security Dialogue (Sage, forthcoming 2024), the Review of International Studies (Cambridge University Press), Defence Studies (Routledge), Critical Military Studies (Routledge), Critique internationale (Presses de Sciences Po), and Cultures & Conflits (L'Harmattan).

I am interested in supervising PhD and postdoctoral researches is the following areas:

- Critical, sociological and post-colonial approach to war, military strategy and great power politics

- Sociology of international organizations and global governance

- Military/police hybridation

- Reflexive approach on the discipline of International Relations
