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 received my Ph.D. in History from the Université Laval (Canada) in 2018.
My current research project focuses on Islam and Muslim societies in Benin, and Togo since Independence. Using Omeka, an open-source web publishing platform, I aim to develop an innovative digital archive database of materials related to Islam in West Africa. My research has also explored the emergence of new forms of Islamic activism among youth and women, on the relationship between politics and Islam, as well as on the appropriation of media by Muslims in Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire. I am the author of the book La construction d’une sphère publique musulmane en Afrique de l’Ouest [The Construction of a Muslim Public Sphere in West Africa] (Presses de l’Université Laval/Hermann, 2016).
