    Biography

    Having worked as a professional freelance translator and English language teacher in various higher education establishments and language schools in and around Brest for nearly a decade (Télécom Bretagne, ENIB, ENSTA, ESIAB, CHRU/IFSI, SHOM, UBO, EasyEngilsh4All), I joined the team at IMT Atlantique full-time in 2016 as an assistant lecturer in English language, culture, and pedagogical innovation. I am head of languages for the FIP (apprentice) program on IMT Atlantique's Brest and Rennes campuses.

    Education

    2017- present: enrolled in doctoral studies in educational science at the UBO under the direction of Gilles KERMARREC (césure 2018-2019)

    2008: Postgraduate diploma (M2) in Translation and Technical Writing. (UBO, Brest)

    2007: Master's degree in English. Master's thesis in Women's History and British Feminism. (UBO, Brest)

    2005: Joint Honours degree in French and Psychology with TEFL (Swansea University, UK)

    Thanks to my background in psychology, I enrolled in a part-time PhD programme in educational sciences at the UBO under the direction of Gilles KERMARREC in 2017. I am affiliated with the CREAD research laboratory and the 3A2P research team. 

    My research focuses on the issue of language learning motivation. I am investigating the way in which peer assessment and peer feedback influences learners' self-regulatory strategies. I am particularly interested in the impact of social aspects on metacognition, and the interaction between social and digital factors, particularly using video feedback.

    I am involved in English teaching at all levels within the LCI department.

    I am head of languages for our apprentice students (FIP) on the Brest and Rennes campuses.
