I'm an economist of the French National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (Insee) and an associate researcher at CRED Université Paris 2.

My interests are at the intersection of public finance, behavioral economics and unemployment insurance.

I am currently employed by the statistical office of the French Ministry of Labor (Dares).

Current Projects

Behavioral Cross-Influence of a Shadow Tax Bracket: Evidence from Bunching where Income Tax Liabilities start, R&R.

Tax filers who neglect a tax collection minimum perceive a shadow tax bracket below the Tax Collection Threshold (TCT) where income tax liabilities start. They end up bunching at an irrelevant Taxation Threshold (TT). Using dynamic adjustments to this misperceived schedule, I estimate a significantly positive behavioral cross-influence of the TT.

The Take-up of Unemployment Benefit Extensions (with B. Boutchenik)

Receiving an informative mailing upon unemployment benefit exhaustion stimulates job certification, ultimately increasing potential benefit duration. This intervention provided first-time claimants with pieces of information they used to miss, whereas it acted as a reminder for the more experienced ones.
