I received my PhD (2005) and M.Sc. (1996) in Anthropology and my BA in Art History (1991) from the Université de Montréal. I also received a post-graduate diploma in management from the École des Hautes Études Commerciales in 1998. Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked as a consultant in international development project and program evaluation. I grew up in Montreal and speak French, English, and Spanish.
My research has focused on the moral economies of humanitarian action and the dynamics of post-disaster reconstruction, namely in Central America. I have been interested in topics relating to the politics of community participation, social inequality, theories of gift and exchange, and questions about hope, value and utopianism as they manifest in development and salvational practices. I am currently starting new research in Cuba on people's changing economic lives.
