After having practiced as a clinical psychologist, I conducted research in the sociology of mental health sciences, in particular during an ethnography of the production of an innovative treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). My socio-anthropological research-action project aims at 1) analyzing the transformations of knowledge, practices and social structures induced by the emergence of new technologies in mental health while 2) participating in the design of such devices. By making it possible to observe and intervene at any time and in any place, these tools are part of a revolution in the conceptualization of disorders and their treatment and a major improvement in the personalized follow-up of individuals in situ. They can transform the ways of thinking and being in the world of the users and modify the power relationships between the actors of an expanding field (psychiatry-mental health-wellness). My methodologies are based on a participatory-observational posture with a privileged access to an ongoing multidisciplinary science.

My main current work concerns 1) the design of a digital strategy for suicide prevention as coordinator of the chat and social networks pole for the national suicide prevention number; 2) the study of representations and digital uses in the field of mental health at the European level, in collaboration with the WHO Collaborating Centre (CCOMS); 3) the "renaissance of psychedelics in the field of psychiatry" in collaboration with the Paris Brain Institute (ICM).
