Marilyse joined ServiceNow Research in 2022 as the Executive assistant of Nicolas Chapados (VP Research). Prior to joining ServiceNow, she spent 10 years in Vancouver teaching French and French literature at UBC and Quest University. She holds a Master degree in History, and a joint PhD (UBC/Paris-Nanterre) in French literature. Her research focused on the figure of the nun and her representation in 18th-century French novels and society. In a nutshell, various sources highlight the process by which fiction participates in the construction of a negative social imagination of nuns and convents. Her research sheds a new light on a social imagination that was prevalent in the 18th century, and is an original contribution to the study of representation of women in literature. On a personal level, she loves cooking, playing piano, reading, and more than anything, hiking and spending time in the mountains.
