I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics of KU Leuven. I received my PhD in Economics from Sciences Po Paris.


  • August 2019: read an interview about my research for the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Working Group (HCEO)
  • June 2019: read a 10-page intro to my PhD thesis in English or French.
  • May 2019: the paper "The Role of Evolving Marital Preferences in Growing Income Inequality", written with Simon Weber, has been accepted at the Journal of Population Economics.
  • March 2019: the Job Market is over: see Sciences Po's JM candidates' placement!

Fields of research

I work on a broad set of topics in labor and family economics: marriage markets, divorce, family labor supply, fertility, human capital.

I am specialized in the modeling and estimation of matching markets of different kinds - with or without frictions, static or dynamic.
