Specialist of contemporary literature and arts, I have practiced the literary archives of F authors as George Perec and Michel Leiris. I have always investigated with a semantic perspective the relationships between disciplines focusing on the idea of man and of difference. In 2006 I finished my doctorate in EHESS getting a collaboration with a laboratory of the institution and devoted my activity to international conferencing and research.
