I am assistant professor at the CEVIPOF (Sciences Po Paris) and an associate researcher at the Institut d'Études Cognitives (Laboratoire de Neurosciences Cognitives & Institut Jean Nicod, École Normale Supérieure, Paris). 

I am interested in the cognitive mechanisms underlying social and political behaviour, notably leader choice and cooperation. In particular, I adopt an ecological and evolutionary approach to better understand the inter-individual differences in these domains, across both space and time. To do so, I rely on behavioral data, social surveys, computational modeling and, more recently, the analysis of cultural artifacts such as paintings and books.
