I was trained as a biologist at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. I specialized in Ecology and Evolution and more precisely the evolution of social behaviours. I did my PhD under the direction of Dan Sperber at the Institut Jean Nicod in Paris (France) and in 2009 I defended my PhD thesis entitled “Darwinian theories of cultural evolution: models and mechanisms” (in French here). I worked with Andrew Whiten at the Psychology department of St Andrews University from 2010 to 2013 first with a Fyssen Foundation fellowship then with a Templeton Foundation and Wellcome Trust grant. In 2013 I joined the comparative cognition team led by Joël Fagot at the LPC with a ANR PDOC grant.
