I'm a PhD candidate in economics at Laval University (Quebec city).

My research is mostly focussed on social interactions and social networks with some applications to development economics and political economy. In my work, there is a good mix of applied microeconometrics studies, and theoretical modelling.

More specifically, in my research, I address some specific questions on healthcare professionals strategic response to peers productivity in a fixed wage environment, using empirical data. At the same time, I also have a great interest in giving some theoretical answers to questions on opinion and beliefs formation in networks in which individuals are subject to cognitive biases.
