I am a junior professor of practical philosophy at Freie Universität in Berlin. My primary research is in political philosophy, feminist philosophy, moral philosophy, and philosophy of economics. I also work on questions in 20th Century French philosophy, critical theory, philosophy of social sciences, and phenomenology.

My first book, We Are Not Born Submissive: How Patriarchy Shapes Women's Lives was first published in French as On ne naît pas soumise, on le devient by Flammarion in 2018. I then authored an English version published by Princeton University Press. It has also been translated in German and Spanish, and translations in Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Turkish are underway.

My second book, La Conversation des sexes: Philosophie du consentement (The Conversation of the Sexes: Philosophy of Consent) was published in French by Flammarion in 2021, and an Italian translation was published by Einaudi in 2022. I am currently authoring an English version that will be published by Harvard University Press.

I also edited a reader of feminist philosophy entitled Textes-clés de philosophie féministe: Patriarcat, savoirs, justice and published by Vrin in 2021.

I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy from the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in July 2017. My dissertation is entitled “Consenting to One's Submission: A Philosophical Problem”. I held positions as an Edmond J. Safra Post-Doctoral Fellow-in-Residence at Harvard, a Harper-Schmidt Fellow and a Collegiate Assistant Professor in the Social Sciences Collegiate Division at the University of Chicago, and a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows, and an assistant professor of philosophy at Yale University.

I am a former student of the École Normale Supérieure de Paris, I hold a Master in Economics and Public Policy that is a joint degree between Sciences Po, École Polytechnique and ENSAE, and I passed the agrégation in philosophy (a competitive examination in philosophy in France).
