Research interests

I am the former curator of the early modern books at the Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal (BnF). I mainly worked on book collections (17th-18th centuries). I also worked on the history of residents of the Arsenal . Additionaly, I collaborated to several events that took place in the library, notably an exhibition about embroidered bindings, another about the Roman de la Rose and a series of activities entitled Les Plaisirs de l'Arsenal (conferences, exhibitions, performances). As a curator, I realized the incunabula catalogue of the Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal with the help of Louis-Gabriel Bonicoli.
