I am currently a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for African Studies at the University of Florida. I am also affiliated with the Sahel Research Group. I completed my PhD in History at the Université Laval (Canada) with distinction in 2018.
My current research project focuses on the history of Muslim minorities in southern cities of Benin and Togo since Independence. My research has also explored the various forms of Islamic activism among youth and women, their appropriation of media, and Muslim politics in Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire. Moreover, I am developing a digital archive database containing more than 10,000 documents related to Islam in West Africa.
I am the author of the book La construction d’une sphère publique musulmane en Afrique de l’Ouest (Presses de l’Université Laval/Hermann, 2016).
