Star Wars was the original inspiration that led me to film studies after high school. In 2005, I graduated from ESRA Paris with a professional degree in media production, before studying for a Bachelor (2006) and a Master’s (2008) at Paris III Sorbonne Nouvelle, both in Film and Media Studies.
In 2009, I obtained a second Master’s, in Digital Culture and Technology, at King’s College London in the United Kingdom.
In 2016, I moved to the United States to study for a Ph.D. in Arts and Humanities at the University of Texas at Dallas. I completed my coursework, qualifying exams and submitted my dissertation proposal by Spring 2019, after three years on scholarship, working as a Teaching Assistant for the undergraduate course “Exploration of the Arts.”
My degree’s concentration is in Aesthetic Studies (Women in American Film and Television; Storytelling and the Hero’s Journey: from Oral Tradition to Transmedia), with a minor in History of Ideas (Science and Religion).
I am currently working on my dissertation Dr. Dana Scully of The X-Files: A Feminist Scientist Navigating Patriarchies and am planning to graduate in Spring 2021.
I have presented and published my scholarly work in several countries; and I also publish some of my essays and books independently.
I am a member of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi at The University of Texas at Dallas chapter.
I am also a member of Alpha Psi Nu, the University of Texas at Dallas’s chapter of the Honors English Society Sigma Tau Delta.
I was also a recipient of the Marvin and Kathy Stone Graduate Research Fellowship Award (Center for Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology at the University of Texas at Dallas) for Spring 2019, as well as a 2020/2021 recipient of the Armstrong Fellowship Award (School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Texas at Dallas)
