I'm a ceramicist and a researcher specialized in medieval Egyptian and Near Eastern pottery. Graduated in 2011 at Paris IV-Sorbonne, my Phd thesis focused on medieval ceramics discovered in Cairo. I've been involved in several archaeological projects in Egypt, Syria, Armenia, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine and Saudi Arabia. My postdoc at MF is part of the DeCHrim project and focus on Egyptian Ceramics in the Early Christian time.
