My name is Anto Ficatier. I am passionate about youth culture and love doing research! I am originally from France and lived in the US, Hong Kong, and now England. My wife, Jess, and enjoy life in leafy Surrey. I also speak Chinese, and founded a training center in Paris to teach Chinese!

On the academic side, I am a part-time Ph.D. researcher at the University of Birmingham. My field is at the intersection of technology and theology. I look at the concept of network from a metaphysical point of view, and analyzes how digital technologies impact Christian theology.

I have been nominated as one of the ten Cumberland Lodge Fellows for the years 2020-2022.

I’ve recently joined YPulse, the leading youth intelligence firm – where I’m leading the development of Asia-Pacific.
