I am a cultural historian of memory, race and immigration in Britain and France. I finished my PhD, entitled 'Revisiting Silence: The Memory of Colonialism in Britain and France, 1960-2015', in 2016 at Queen Mary University of London. I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in French Language and Culture.

My research examines the memory of colonialism in Britain and France. It explores the creation of memory cultures in both society and the ways different actors incited public debates about coming to terms with the history of colonial domination in the former metropoles.
