Current Project

I am currently working on mineral waters in eighteenth-century Britain (with a book on eighteenth-century British Spas, forthcoming in 2022) and in Europe.

I am part of the steering committee of “The Person in Medicine Institute” at the Université de Paris, and I have obtained a CNRS research grant (delegation) at the IHRIM research center, Université de Clermont-Auvergne in 2019-20.

I am the co-director of the Fondation des États-Unis, Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris with Anne Crémieux, Université Paris 8.
