Marien has a PhD in social anthropology with a thesis entitled “Ana loubia. Ethnographie des homosexualités masculines à Casablanca” (2018, Editions du Croquant). He was a post-doc the University of Angers, with field work in Dubai and Morocco to study the migratory paths of homosexual men. In 2019, Marien taught anthropology and sociology at the University of Ningbo, China. Since 2020, he is project manager at the ILCB and teaches occasionally at the University of Grenoble Alpes.
