I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the Toulouse School of Economics and a Research Affiliate at the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR). I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics from Yale University. My research is in economic theory, with a special focus on information design, mechanism design, and the digital economy. Starting in January 2024, I will join the editorial board of the Review of Economic Studies. Here is my CV.
