As PhD candidate in Assyriology at the University of Toronto, I research third millennium Mesopotamian social history, exploring administrative sources using traditional and computational approaches under the supervision of Paul-Alain Beaulieu. I hold a M.A. in Mesopotamian Studies from the University of Geneva where I wrote a thesis about the work organization in the fish industry of Early Dynastic Lagash, supervised by Antoine Cavigneaux. I also hold a B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Quebec in Montreal. Previously Jackman Junior fellow, I now am a SSHRC doctoral awardee. I am co-PI at the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI) and manage both the Machine Translation and Automated Analysis of Cuneiform Languages (MTAAC) project and the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative Framework Update project.

My research interests are shared between:

  • 3rd millennium BC Mesopotamia:
    • Institutions, work organization, and social boundaries
    • Popular religion
  • Natural language processing of cuneiform languages;
  • Corpus analysis and network analysis;
  • Sumerian literature and grammar, and sign palaeography;
  • Open access, open data and accessibility;
  • Knowledge exchange and public humanities
