I am a CNRS researcher at CREST (Centre de Recherche en Economie et Statistiques) and a Professor at Ecole Polytechnique and ENSAE. I am interested in labor economics, public policy evaluation, and the role of non-cognitive skills and subjective expectations for economic decisions.

I am research fellow at the IAB Nuremberg, IZA and at DIW Berlin, and at the IPP (Institut des Politiques Publiques).

Here you can find my CV, my Google Scholar profile and my Repec profile.
