About Me

                        I completed my undergraduate degree in International Development & Globalization at the University of Ottawa, Canada. I then undertook a one year Master degree program in 'Conflict Transformation & Peace Building' as an exchange student in NewDelhi University, India. I have a previous experience of 8 years living primarily in China, and then in India where I currently reside. As a part of the HAL team, I am interested in mapping and analyzing the current trade of exotic animals in Asia, specifically in those two countries, and in highlighting and better understanding humanimal relationships within the trade from an anthropological perspective of the religious, traditional and medicinal aspect of the studied topic of research.

                          Dans le cadre d'un programme d'échange de l'Université d'Ottawa, Canada, j'ai complété ma dernière session d'études universitaires spécialisées en Développement International & Mondialisation en Inde, à l'université de NewDelhi. Puis, j'ai décidé d'y rester afin de compléter le programme de maîtrise d'un an spécialisé en "Transformation de Conflits et Construction de Paix". Je possède également une expérience de vie de 8 ans principalement en Chine, puis en Inde, endroit où je réside actuellement. Au sein de l’équipe HAL, je m’intéresse à la cartographie et l’analyse du commerce d’animaux exotiques en Asie, soit plus précisément dans ces deux pays. De plus, je cherche à approfondir la compréhension de la relation humanimale et de sa dynamique à l’intérieur de ce commerce, et ce, d’un regard anthropologique sur l'aspect religieux, traditionnel et médical de l'étude du sujet de recherche.

                       我在渥太华大学攻读学士学位毕业了:国际发展与全球化,同时我也当过教授研究助理。当年我在印度新德里留学,学习了一年硕士学位课程 “冲突转化和平安建设”。 我之前八年主要住在中国,也有一小部分时间住在印度。现在我就在印度定居。作为HAL 研究团队的一员,我对于在这两个国家定位有关于动物以及动物制品的贸易非常感兴趣;另外,在人类学以及宗教传统及医疗方面的视角上,我也想加深对于人和动物关系在贸易方面的理解。
