I have a Doctorate in Contemporary and Political History from the Université de la Nouvelle SorbonneParis and have been studying issues of violence against women since 2002. I have published several articles and have completed several research projects on the subject.

I went on to work in the community sector doing project and research coordination as well as training. Besides my research focused on domestic violence, I also edited a collection of articles on responsibilitand the different faces of violence against women (sexual and domestic violence, honour crimes, forced marriages, and so on), which was published by PUQ in 2014. I have also taught university and college level courses on domestic and sexual violence. I acurrently the Project Coordinator at the Table de concertation en violence conjugale de Montréal for a project funded by Status of Women Canada entitled Pratiques concertées pour optimiser la sécurité des femmes, victimes de violence conjugale et de leurs enfants.
