I grew up in Tangier, Morocco and moved to Paris, France to study French and English Literature. I graduated from the University of Paris, and have a Diplome de l’Institut d’Etudes Politiques (Paris) and a Ph.D in French Literature from Columbia University in New York.
I taught Literature-Humanities at Columbia University, French and English Literature at Barnard College and the State University of New York (Purchase College).
My articles and book reviews have appeared in academic and non-academic publications such as Lilith, the Jerusalem Report, the Jerusalem Post, the Washington Post, the New York Times and the New York Times Book Review. I write about art, literature and culture, primarily French, Sephardi and North African.
