International Health Humanities Network Membership
I am a psychosociologist, with a business school degree in Humand Resource Management, a master in health economics and management, and a PhD in science and engineering of at-risk activities. My core research topic is burnout (in Alzheimer special care unit caregivers), but I am currently searching on various entities of fatigue, trying to develop "fatigue studies" as an integrative scientific field, inspired from Health Humanities. One of my favorite anthropological aterial is fiction literature, i particular from 19th Century in France and Germany.
An interest in arts and its role for mental wellbeing led to my research and professional development in the arts therapies. Before that, I trained in psychology and psychotherapy and worked in clinical roles in mental health settings. In my PhD project I explored the value of arts therapies for the treatment of adult depression. My current research interests and collaborations concern the general wellbeing, physical activity of older adults and arts-based interventions for depression.
