I am a Professor in Game Studies at the School of Media of Université du Québec à Montréal and the co-director of the research group Homo Ludens. My main areas of expertise include game studies, media sociology, and gender studies. I hold a Joint Ph.D. in Communication from UQAM/UdeM/Concordia University (Montreal, Canada). My PhD thesis explores the possibility of using parodies as playful means to denaturalize gender stereotypes, raise consciousness and empower people. During my postdoctoral fellowship at MIT Comparative Media Studies | Writing, I pursued my work on gender parody in the field of game studies. I am currently conducting research on the immersion of the player in video games, on the place of women in the gaming industry, on gender representations in video games, as well as on the ideology of play.
