This personal web site presents a research work - past and in progress - in Ethnology / Social Anthropology. It deals with the ethnology of the oases, and their very peculiar ecosystems, but also with an ethnology of public spaces and public gardens (parks) in Cairo, and with an anthropology of sound ambiances. And other subjects... This web site is the opportunity of a dynamic presentation of my work.
