Biography

At PhiLab, I act as the student representative. My role consists of promoting student participation in PhiLab’s activities and serving as an intermediary regarding all questions of education. I am also in charge of the Philanthropic Year, a monthly newsletter that elaborates on and presents a selection of scientific references on various themes related to philanthropy. Finally, to feed PhiLab’s blog, I often write short articles that explore the philanthropic activity of Quebec’s foundations. Outside of the laboratory, I am a Master student in Sociology and am writing my memoir that concerns the emergence of a socially responsible financing in Canadian philanthropic foundations.

Miscellaneous

Retired gymnast and father of a rabbit. I don’t have a motorcycle, but maybe one day, who knows. I like reading and abandoning myself to the relaxing activity of pondering the universe. I thrive most when I find myself in a forest or at the beach, but, paradoxically, I live in Montreal. When I am sad, I listen to Marjo or Jerry Boulet; the same goes for when I am happy. I don’t like horse riding or country music.
