About me

A few years ago, I decided to take on a new challenge. I embarked on a PhD program in Public Health at the University of Montreal after having practised as a clinical pharmacist in a tertiary healthcare center for almost a decade. I am curious about the human experience, particularly individuals’ relationship to objects such as drugs. My doctoral research explores the contemporary uses of prescription psychostimulants (e.g. Adderall, Ritalin) among members of online discussion fora. I take a social science perspective and have published about this here.

My thesis directors are Johanne Collin (Faculty of Pharmacy) and Vinh-Kim Nguyen (School of Public Health).

I’m from Montreal, Quebec, and my first language is French. My last name sounds a little like “rabbit-tail” if you try to pronounce it in English 😉 .
