I am a geographer, specialized in the geography of heritage and tourism. From protected areas and cultural sites, I analyze the actions of actors in the construction of what constitutes “heritage”, as well as the modes of management and development of tourism in different mountain territories.
Field of research
As a geographer, I start from what I observe in space to analyze the way in which territorial actors operate at different scales. At the same time, I analyze the values attributed to places which thereby become “heritage”, the associated management methods and their effects on the construction of territories.
