About Me

I am an Occupational Medicine specialist and I graduated from Nantes Medical School (2009). I have completed my residency in Angers University Hospital (France, 2013). I also hold degrees in Addiction Medicine and Industrial Toxicology. I attended several courses in Industrial psychology, in CNAM (Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers) in Paris, France. 

While working as an Occupational Medicine specialist in Brest University Hospital, in France (2013 – 2019), I provided clinical service to the Occupational Health Service (OHS) available to Hospital staff. I have also provided clinical service to the Occupational Diseases Center, an expert outpatient clinic, especially in the field of work-related mental diseases and served as head of the center (2018 – 2019). I have set up with the help of residents in Occupational Medicine, a mobile team in Occupational Diseases for inpatients, hospitalized in the departments of Oncology and Hematology, in order to identify professional exposures that may allow them to benefit from compensations. 


My research activity was related to these fields: work-related mental diseases, work-related cancers. At a national level, I have been implied in the Network for monitoring and prevention of occupational diseases (rnv3p). I have been in charge of the working group concerning work-related mental diseases between 2017 and 2019. I am also serving as deputy secretary general for the French Society for Occupational Medicine. At an international level, I am member of ICOH (International Commission in Occupational Health) and I serve as the national secretary for France (2018 – 2021). This allowed me to be part of several international research projects, including a systematic review following the ILO and WHO joint methodology, concerning the possible links between long working hours and depression. I am also Co-Chair of the scientific group Work Organizational and Psychosocial Factors of ICOH. 

I have joined the University of Alberta and the Division of Preventive Medicine on April 1st, 2019. I am appointed as the Program Director for the Occupational Medicine Residency Program. I provide clinical service in the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Clinic, in the Kaye Edmonton Clinic. My current research activity is still largely connected with work-related mental issues. I am also contributing to systematic reviews in the field of occupational medicine, to help practitioners to build their practice on evidence.
