Teaching and mentoring are integral aspects of my academic identity. I have taught a range of courses at the undergraduate and graduate level across several research institutions, including UNIL, EPFL, UNIFR, EHESS, and more recently BFH, taking on roles ranging from student assistant to lecturer. My teaching philosophy emphasizes interactivity and inclusiveness, creating a dynamic classroom that fosters critical thinking.
