She was born in Paris in 1995. After graduating from high school with a scientific focus in Vannes (Brittany), she continued her studies in Art History and Modern Literature at French universities (Université de Rennes II and École Pratique des Hautes Études - PSL in Paris) as well as at the "Sapienza" University of Rome.
In 2017, she earned a Bachelor's degree in Art History and Archaeology from the Université de Rennes II. Interested in intercultural relations, in 2020, she simultaneously graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Modern Literature and with a Master's Degree in Art History at the same university. During the latter course of her education, she conducted, as her thesis research, "The Figure of the Fortune-teller in French and Italian Caravaggesque Painting: between art and literature in Rome in the early seventeenth century", partially carried out in Rome, with "Très Bien" mention (Summa cum Laude). During her first year of Master's degree (2017-2018), she was the winner of the one-year ERASMUS mobility grant in Rome, thus giving her the opportunity to attend the Art History course at the "Sapienza" University and to carry out her thesis work, orienting her scientific interests towards Roman art at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. At the same time as she obtained her two humanities degrees (2019-2020), she was chosen as a first-year teaching assistant in Art History at the University of Rennes II, participating in a lecture series on the modern art collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Rennes ("Découvrir l'art et ses collections"). Her interest and passion for art as well as her propensity for sharing the knowledge she has acquired over the years led her to collaborate with the magazine "Critique d'art" during the same period, writing reviews of books devoted to contemporary art.

Since 2021, she has been a doctoral student in Art History at the École Pratique des Hautes Études in Paris (EPHE-PSL), and is simultaneously enrolled, in co-tutorship, at the "Sapienza" University of Rome for a research project on the School and workshop of Cavalier d'Arpino in Rome in the early seventeenth century. Her research focuses on the workshop’s functioning, the circle of the master's collaborators and pupils, and the development of this leading atelier in Rome, as well as on comparing it with other contemporary Schools and workshops (Caracci, Roncalli, Caravaggio). Finally, in 2022, harboring a strong interest in the teaching field and student assistance, she was elected student representative of EPHE-PSL, and was assigned to teach a first-year course in History of Modern Art of the Renaissance in Italy at the Université Clermont Auvergne in Clermont-Ferrand (“chargée de TD”: 48 hours of lectures on painting, architecture and sculpture of the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries). In September, she won a scholarship from the École Française de Rome, with a research mission on the composition of Cavalier d'Arpino's workshop in Rome.

In addition, in the course of her education between France and Italy, she has developed solid language skills, having to date acquired proficiency and ownership in Italian and English, which she uses fluently, as well as in French (native speaker).
