Short biography:

I am a CNRS engineer for 15 years in the laboratory PACEa, where I manage the archaeometric analysis for lithic raw materials characterization, and also for sedimentology. I participate in several projects of the laboratory, in SW France, in Africa and some in China, and I lead my own projects in the Caribbean islands.

My engagement with/interest in Open Science:

In 2020, I launched the Peer Community In Archaeology, a platform dedicated to the free and transparent peer-review of preprints. Since then, I manage this community in the same ways an editor-in-chief would do in traditional journals. I defend the share of knowledge from the very beginning, thanks to preprint, but I also wanted to have these preprints peer-reviewed, and this is why I launched the system for Archaeology. Since I discovered the world of Open Science, I also inform and push towards it in my laboratory.
