I hold MAs in Modern Languages and Literature (UCLouvain) and Literary Theory (KU Leuven) and I am currently pursuing a PhD degree at the University of Liège and at UCLouvain, under the support of a F.R.S.-FNRS fellowship (Aspirant). My thesis focuses on comics memory in the contemporary graphic novel, with a particular emphasis on material acts of reframing and redrawing. My research has appeared in peer-reviewed journals as Filter, The Comics Grid, European Comic Art, Mémoires du livre, Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics, Inks and Recherches en communication; and I have written about comics for critical platforms as du9, Graphixia, SekvenserGorgonzola and Töpfferiana. I am a member of the ACME Comics Research Group and of the editorial team of Comicalités: Studies in Graphic Culture.
