PhD Engineer

Subject: Sociology


After a Master's degree which already focused on health science, my PhD thesis was funded by the Fondation de France. My thesis focused on the "global" hospital care of children with cancer, and its long-term effects on their identity building.
As an independent researcher and a full member of SPHERE, I work mostly in a multidisciplinary context (medicine, linguistics, psychology, biostatistics, economics).
My research is based on qualitative surveys (interviews, focus groups and observations) and is mainly funded by public tenders.  I work with several institutions and health care services in the western part of France.
My research interests include transformations in the way patients are cared for, interdisciplinary professional collaborations, the effects of prevention measures implemented by health authorities, and patients' trajectories.
