After a PhD in Sociology on conspiracy beliefs, I wanted to put my skills to use in promoting research and helping researchers, particularly in the humanities and social sciences, to ensure that their research results are useful to the rest of society. For more than 2 years I held the position of technology transfer manager at SATT AxLR, where I worked as a project manager, business developer and incubation manager for start-up projects. I also wanted to play a part in training doctoral students and young PhDs in universities, so I joined Adoc Talent Management when the Interdisciplinary PhD Laboratory was set up to continue helping Adoc researchers to promote their research to the doctoral community (universities, associations, PhD students and young PhDs, etc.),  providing at the same time training for doctoral schools.
