Welcome to my google page.

I am a PhD candidate working at the EconomiX research unit, Paris-X Nanterre University.

My dissertation topics deal with fluctuations in emerging economies, specifically those labour-exporting countries in the Middle-East & North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, etc.)
I am interested in documenting their stylised facts, and comparing them to the literature on emerging economies. The purpose of my research is to formulate a theoretical framework that can account for those stylised facts, and I focus on predictions for monetary and fiscal policies. I also work on foreign trade, fiscal devaluation and the impact of imperfect institutions and deficient governance on fluctuations and the labour market.

I use Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium Models (DSGE) to formulate a neo-Keynesian model for estimation and shock decomposition, to further the analysis in the previous points.

My research supervisor is Pr. Jean-Pierre Allegret at EconomiX (Paris-X Nanterre University)

I am also interested in election data in the region, as well as applications of cooperative game theory in explaining how ruling coalitions form and endure.
