I am a geographer whose research focuses on spatial aspects of the Holocaust. I received a Ph.D. in geography from Texas State University in August 2021. My dissertation examined the effect of anti-Jewish persecution on the everyday geography of two Parisian districts, using survivor’s testimonies, archival records, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies.
Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow of the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah and an affiliated researcher at the Institut des Sciences Sociales du Politique, at the University Paris Nanterre. My postdoctoral research concentrates on the Parisian geography of the inmediate aftermath of the Holocaust.
I collaborate with several transdisciplinary research groups, in France and internationally, including the Holocaust Geographies Collaborative.
My research has been supported by multiple institutions, including the Holocaust Educational Foundation and the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, and I have been awarded fellowships from the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Studies and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies.
