I conducted an ethnography of practices of knowledge-making in the humanities during my pre-doctoral studies which explored how scholars in the humanities and social sciences produce theory through the editing of canonical novels in France.

In parallel, I have published various articles with Michèle Lamont and Joshua Guetzkow on evaluation in the social sciences in the United States. This project has also lead me to intervene in a series of public debates on the evaluation of academic work as well as produce reports for specific funding agencies.
