Katherine Blouin has a Ph.D. in Roman History (Laval and Nice).

Her work centres on Roman Egypt, and more specifically on issues dealing with multiculturalism, cultural identities and ancient environments.

Her current professional work seeks to establish how the fluvial and alimentary risk management strategies and policies adopted during the Hellenistic and Roman periods in the Nile Delta and in areas upstream have played a role in the major hydrographic reconfiguration of the Nile Delta that occurred between the Roman conquest and the Arab period.

These innovative works aim at contributing to a better understanding of the too little known yet extremely significant region that is the Nile delta.
