I am an economist whose research addresses various dimensions of economic development, with a focus on formal political economy mechanisms. 

In 2016, I joined the Department of Economics of Université Laval. Before that, I spent 18 months at  the Department of Government in Harvard. 

I received my PhD in 2015 from EHESS, at the Paris School of Economics.

This ac. year, I am on a sabbatical break at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse. I feel lucky and privileged to join an amazing group of scholars, and also to benefit from the neighboring Toulouse School of Economics

This year has been a great occasion to meet with Europeans colleagues and students. Still a few events to come!

This year, the "Déjeuners de l'économie" will be on pause.
