I am working as an environmental economist at Paris School of Economics (PSE), located at the Campus Jourdan in Paris. I am a research fellow at the CNRS  (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique)

My research interests are related to the link between trade liberalization and the environment, in a world where countries do not fully cooperate on environmental issues, and to political economy constraints on (environmental) policies. 

I completed my PhD in 2010 at the Economics department at the Ecole Polytechnique, under the direction of Jean-Marc Bourgeon. After that, I was a Ciriacy-Wantrup fellow at the Agricultural and Resource Economics department, at UC Berkeley in 2010-2012.
