Fields of interest: Demography, Regional & Urban Economics, Microeconometrics

            My research interests are in spatial dynamics of socio-economic inequalities.

I am currently holding the Excellence Research Chair in Population Sciences at the University of Bordeaux 
(Comptrasec, CNRS) and in the French National Institute for Demographic Research (INED). I am also affiliated with
