Chloé is a linguist working on the French team of the Decoding Antisemitism project conducted by the Centre for Research on Antisemitism (ZfA) at TU Berlin. She completed her MA in Linguistics at Queen Mary University of London in September 2020. She specialised in sociolinguistics, learning both quantitative and qualitative methods. Her master’s thesis consisted in analysing the attitudes of native French speakers towards French regional accents.
In the previous years, she had completed her undergraduate degree in anthropology at Lumière University Lyon 2, and a degree in French language teaching at Grenoble Alpes University, while working as a software developer. She also holds a Master of Engineering degree from Grenoble INP Graduate School of Engineering.
She is interested in discrimination and how it is maintained in and through language, especially in covert manifestations of discrimination in language, e.g. dog whistles in politics as a way to carry ideas that are not legal to hold publicly anymore.
