After this, I was awarded a Fellowship from the Thiers
Foundation while completing my doctoral thesis on Michel Foucault. Before
coming to Essex, I taught in France
at the Universities of Paris IV-Sorbonne, Reims
and Amiens. I was invited as a
Visiting Scholar twice by the University
of California (Berkeley),
and by the Université de Nice (France).
I am the author of L'ontologie manquée de
Michel Foucault, a substantially revised version of which

Schopenhauer, Heidegger and aesthetics.
