Trained in demography and sociology, I defended my PhD in 2004. I am interested in social and demographic changes in West Africa. I explore these issues by studying family dynamics and gender relationships, working more particularly on education, migration and family reconfigurations through marriage processes. I also work on the ethical issues related to our research methodologies through the lenses of pedagogic decolonisation in the academic environment. My current projects are on young and adolescent girls' educational dynamics in Senegal, and on immigrants' social participation to the host society in Canada/Québec.
