I head of the European Office of CEIS, a strategic advisory company specialised in sectors of national sovereignty, including security, defence and cyber, and with a sub-specialty in the digital transformation of these fields. I previously headed the Media & Communication team at the European Defence Agency, after eight years of leading the Peace, Security & Defence Programme of the Brussels-based think-tank Friends of Europe (previously the Security & Defence Agenda). I am Vice-President for Outreach & Operations of Women in International Security (WIIS) Brussels in addition to being a founding member and Treasurer of the Brussels Binder. I began my career in the defence industry, after studying at King’s College London, the Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris and Leiden University in the Netherlands.
I speak French, English, German and Italian, and am the mother of two children.
