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.
