I am currently Deputy Head of the EU Office of CEIS, a French strategic advisory company specialised in the security & defence sector. 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 have been an active member of Women in International Security (WIIS) Brussels since 2010, and coordinate the group’s outreach, membership, fundraising and network. 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 am on the Board of the Brussels Binder. I speak English, French, German and Italian, and am the mother of two children.
Experience in moderating large conferences (400+ participants) or smaller debates and workshops, some experience in speaking on panels (at 100+ participant events). Extensive media experience (written, radio, tv).
