My name is Nicolas Barbier. In 2012, I got a PhD in geography (summa cum laude) following three years at the University of Idaho (U.S.A.) as a visiting scholar in cooperation with the Université de Bourgogne (France). 

As a postdoctoral researcher, I wrote ten papers published in academic journals and books. I have also made three documentary films selected for screenings at various events (festivals, conferences, etc.). 

Since late 2015, I have mostly been working as an independent journalist.
