École Polytechnique - CREST

Ph.D. in Economics (expected June 2019)

I am a Ph.D. candidate in economics at École Polytechnique - CREST in Paris. I am on the job market this year, available for interviews at the Royal Economic Society PhD meetings in London on December 18-19, 2018 and at the ASSA annual meeting in Atlanta on January 4-6, 2019.

My research is in applied microeconometrics. I enjoy using a variety of econometric techniques - ranging from simple regressions to complex structural models - to answer interesting questions. In my job market paper I estimate economic preferences and map them onto the Big Five personality traits. In my ongoing work, I examine a unique dataset covering smartphones sold on Amazon to determine the impact of consumer reviews on prices and quantities.
