About

Astrophysicist by training, I have worked for 17 years (2001-2017) as head of educational resources for the La main à la pâte Foundation. I have coordinated several large-scale educational programs on sustainable development (climate change, housing, mobility, health, natural disasters...) and science (computer sciences, astronomy), which have been implemented in more than 100,000 classes in France and abroad. My expertise lies in science teaching and education for sustainable development; in particular the design of pedagogical projects and teacher training. In 2017, I coordinated a feasibility study for an international initiative for climate change education, which led to the creation of the Office for Climate Education in 2018.
