Biography

I've been an independant journalist in Paris for 5 years, focussing on environnement, social innovation and the impact of new technologies. I decided to move in India to explore the issues of this complex developing country. I am based in Bangalore to cover the South of the Country, often neglected by the journalists mostly based in Delhi. I work for Radio France International and Europe 1 radios. I was awarded with the Reporter of Hope distinction for my work as a journalist.

Funded project

Tuberculosis: the scourge of another era ravaging India silently

India accounts for a quarter of all cases of tuberculosis. This project will follow the work of NGOs at the heart of the contagion outbreaks and will investigate the challenges and promises of access to the treatment.
