Main activities

I conduct research on migration and movement in rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa, especially on pastoral mobility (pastoral systems, resources, environment, transhumance, sedentarisation, pastoral crisis, forced migration). I also study conflicts and violence, and the spatial recompositions that they imply. My privileged fields are located in Sudanese and Sahelian Africa.
