As a consultant, I work mainly in the french context of the massive restructuration of the academic field that is taking place there orchestrated by the Investissements pour l’avenir. This includes especially the management of institutional change and the formulation and enacting of research and development strategies. A special field of expertiese (generally within SIRIS, I must say) is a thourough knowledge of the international context in which these changes take place, as the mentioned adaptation is mainly driven by the radical globalisation of peak research and education.

As a philosopher, I hold a PhD that I did in a cotutelle between Freie Universität Berlin and Université de Picardie Jules Verne. My thesis bridges the phenomenological and analytical tradition in philosophy insofar as it tackles the question of the epistemic and ethical implications of our bodily engagement in the world by cross-reading the works of Ludwig Wittgenstein and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. My central interests are the question of expession, the anthropology of language, and the nature of subjectivity.
