I am an assistant professor at the School of International Development and Global Studies at the University of Ottawa.
My research addresses the inclusive development at the World Bank, the marginalization of feminist and postcolonial research in International Relations, as well as the inequalities supported by the institutionalized world order.
I am a Board Member of the NGO Alternatives, co-instigator of the initiative Femmes Expertes, member of the Task Force on Institutional Accountability for Anti-racism in the international cooperation sector in Canada, and a member of the Executive Committee of the Canadian Association for the Study of International Development (CASID).
In 2021, I was awarded an Impact Award (Talent Award) by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), and in 2020, the Alice Wilson Award by the Royal Society of Canada. In 2020-2021, I was a Banting postdoctoral fellow at the Department of political science and Centre de recherches et d’études internationales, Université de Montréal.
