I am an applied
microeconomist, interested in understanding the behaviour of individuals, both
theoretically and empirically, with the aim of informing policy. Part of my
research focuses on modelling intra-household behaviour in order to understand
how individuals interact to reach the decisions whose consequences we see. I am
particularly interested in applying these models in the context of developing
economies. I also have a long-standing interest in consumption and demand,
which has informed both my research and policy oriented work, conducted for UK
government bodies. I also work on health.
I was educated in France, where I obtained a PhD from Delta-Ehess. I am a Reader (Associate Professor) in the Department of Economics at UCL and a Research Fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. I am currently the Director of the BSc in Economics at UCL.
