He holds a PhD in Geography. Based in Amman, Jordan, where he joined the Institut français du Proche-Orient (Ifpo) in 2009, he also works as an associate researcher at Gremmo (Lyon). His research focuses on cross-border flows of goods and persons in the spatial organization of the Middle East region. He studies how migrant populations (workers, refugees, smugglers, fighters…) circulate, the inner dynamics of the spaces hence produced, as well as the deriving regional integration processes.
