Professor of early modern studies at the University of Paris (ex-Paris Diderot), and a member of the LARCA research centre (UMR 8225, CNRS). The two focuses of my research are early modern drama (Shakespeare and his contemporaries), and travel writings connected to the East, with a particular interest in Muscovy and Persia. I am currently a visiting fellow at Exeter college, Oxford, and benefit from a Délégation CNRS (one-year funded research leave) from the LARCA.
