After completing my Ph.D., I founded Cooperans. This public affairs company helps governmental agencies, businesses and civil society organisations to conduct their projects and defend their interests regarding governance, sustainable development and EU-China relations.
Since March 2011 to March 2015, I had served as a research fellow for UrbaChina, a European Union collaborative project. This programme aimed at analysing China’s urbanisation trends.
I was involved in both research and dissemination activities.
During my studies, I completed several internships in political consulting firms (Hubert Védrine Conseil in Paris), NGOs (Adiflor in Paris, Partners Hungary in Budapest) and international relations organisations (Istituto Affari Internazionali in Rome).
I graduated in international political studies from the European School of Economics and Nottingham Trent University, then I completed a master in international relations from IRIS (Institut de Relations Internationales et Stratégiques, ‘Institute for International and Strategic Affairs’). I received a M.A. in social sciences and a Ph.D. in economic and social development studies from EHESS (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, ‘School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences’).
My doctoral dissertation examines China’s regional development policies and focuses on the case of the province of Hainan.
