Thank you for visiting my webpage! Here is a short bio, I am:

  • Associate researcher at the Governance and Regulation Chair;

  • I hold a PhD in Management Science from PSL - Paris-Dauphine University - Dauphine Research in Management (DRM - UMR CNRS 7088) - Management & Organizations lab. My supervisor was Pr. Eric Brousseau. I was also research Engineer (CIFRE ) for Orange Labs - SENSE lab (Sociology and Economics of Networks and Services). My supervisor was Dr. Kevin Mellet. I defended my PhD thesis in June 2020: you can find the final version of the dissertation online here ;

  • I work as a policy officer for a French regulation authority, on advertising issues and media economics.

As a researcher, I study the online advertising market and, more precisely, the way this market tends to be self-regulated by specific organizations like trade associations, metrics producers and standard-setters. I address these issues through case studies (e.g. ad-blocking, data quality) and pay attention to the practices of the market actors. My theoretical approach is connecting economic sociology and competition dynamics.

Topics : advertising, digital marketing, environmental impact of advertising, self-regulation, trade associations, standards .

Before starting my PhD in October 2016, I worked for one year in the field of public affairs for a main French renewable energy producer (ENGIE). I graduated from Sciences Po Strasbourg (Master in Economic and Regulatory Law) and I hold a Master of Business, Competition and Regulatory Law (LLM program) from the Freie Universität Berlin and a Master in Digital Economics and Network Industries (IREN) from Paris-Dauphine.
