She has also been a narrative analyst and methods lead for international critical public diplomacy projects and EU perceptions research and has taught War & Security to undergraduate students.
Pauline successfully defended her PhD in Politics & International Relations on ontological security, strategic narratives, and agency around crises events. She holds an MA in International Security, Global Risks and Middle East from Sciences Po, Paris. She has been selected as an Emerging Scholar in the field of public diplomacy by the Milton Wolf Seminar hosted by the Diplomatic Academy Vienna and the Annenberg School of Communication.
Outside of work Pauline enjoys long walks, music, good coffee and writing (lousy) poetry.
