I am a post-doctoral fellow at the Centre Alexandre Koyré (EHESS, CNRS, MNHN). I have a dual education as a doctor in social sciences (EHESS) and as a biosciences engineer (INSA Lyon). My research is at the crossroads of the history and sociology of science, environmental history, and the sociology of expertise and public action. It focuses on production of knowledge and policies in the field of environmental health in the 20th and 21st centuries.
In my PhD work, I studied the scientific, social and political trajectory of a group of chemicals, PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), used for many purposes from the 1930s onwards and considered since the late 1960s as persistent and ubiquitous pollutants in the environment, on a global scale. I have studied the construction and government of damages, problems, hazards and risks associated with this group of substances, at different scales (international, national, local).
In the framework of AMAGRI and with funding from the "DIM One Health" of the Région Île-de-France (2019-2021), I focus on the production of knowledge concerning the environmental component of the AMR problem (in particular the knowledge on releases and circulation of antibiotics and resistant bacteria in the environment). I study the evolution of scientific research on this environmental component, on an international scale, in the context of the deployment of the "One Health" watchword.
