About me

I was born in Belgium and have lived in Germany, France, Canada and the UK. After completing a Bachelor’s degree in History (specialization Genocide studies) at Montreal’s Concordia University, I volunteered for NGOs in Ghana and Rwanda. In 2011, I completed a Master’s degree in Conflict, Security and Development at King’s College London and wrote my dissertation on the challenges of post-genocide reconciliation in Rwanda. I currently work as the Assistant to the Director at the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS). I contribute to the Institute’s various projects and manage a team of interns who work on MIGS’ Media Monitoring Project, which is intended to provide early warning of genocide and mass atrocity crimes. I also conduct research for MIGS’ Will to Intervene Project, a public policy project launched by Lt-General Roméo Dallaire and Frank Chalk which seeks to prevent mass atrocities.

I write about  conflict, peace, mass atrocity crimes and genocide.I have particular interest in Sub-Saharan Africa.

My new interest is the use of new technologies and communication technologies for mass atrocity prevention, human rights, and development.
