Personal profile


I joined the Norwich Business school in October 2018 as a PhD student and Graduate Teaching Assistant. I hold a Master's degree in Urban Studies (University of Lille) and I worked two years as an urban planner and market researcher with local authorities before starting my research as a PhD student.

My research explores the embedding process of social innovation activities delivered by Housing Associations in the French and English social housing contexts. My study is closely related to an Interreg (France-Channel-England) project, the INCREASE VS Project that develops a new cross-border training programme to help social housing residents set up their own micro-businesses or achieve other forms of employment.


Key Research Interests
