In a nutshell:
I’m a PhD student in Languages, Literatures and Cultures at McGill University and Sorbonne-Université, with a concentration in Hispanic and Lusophone studies. I also work as a research coordinator, writer and translator (English-French-Portuguese).
In a few more words:
I’m in love with the written word and care deeply about the arts, education and human rights – especially people's right to move. My SSHRC and FRQSC-funded PhD research centres on the themes of refuge and hospitality in contemporary Latin American and African migration narratives. I have an M.A. in Art History from the Université de Montréal and an M.A. in Portuguese, Brazilian and Luso-African Studies from Sorbonne-Université. I also have a postgraduate diploma in French as a Foreign Language teaching from Sorbonne-Nouvelle and have advanced training in pedagogy and college/university-level teaching.
I'm currently Head of Research & Publications for international NGO and mobility fund Art Moves Africa and am an independent member of cultural mobility network On the Move. I have worked with organizations supporting refugees & immigrants in Montréal and in Mozambique, and regularly collaborate with cultural organizations and cultural professionals towards their writing and communication needs.
I am myself a traveler and creative type at heart, which really means I love to walk and wander, and I often like to write and take photos along the way.
