Christophe holds a PhD in Financial Economics (University of Paris I Pantheon Sorbonne) and he joined the School of Management at the University of Leicester as Lecturer in Finance in August 2011. His initial background is MSc in Business Engineering from University of Liege. After graduating, he was awarded MA in Economics from the University of Paris I. He also holds a M.A. in Philosophy of Sciences from the Catholic University of Louvain as well as a MSc in Risk Management and a BSc in Computer Sciences. Between 2009 and 2011, Christophe had a postdoctoral fellowship in Canada (University of Quebec at Montreal). He was visiting scholar at the CPNSS at the London School of Economics between September 2011 and August 2012.
He regularly publishes papers in journals in which he also has editorial and referee activities. He is Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Economics and Management Engineering (IJEME) and Associate Editor of the International Journal of Management Concepts & Philosophy (IJMCP).
His research interest focus on financial economics and more precisely behavioral finance and econophysics (statistical physics applied to finance). He also tries to use his philosophical background in order to propose some epistemological reflections about financial economics. For several years, Christophe has been a research consultant for private companies, such as JPMorgan and Suez Gaz de France.
Since October 2012, Christophe has been involved in another PhD in Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge. The objective of this second PhD is to develop an epistemological perspective on his current work about econophysics.
Financial economics, Econophysics, Behavioural finance, Physics applied to Economics and Finance, Philosophy of Economics/Finance, Contemporary Philosophy of Sciences and Postmodernity, Ontology and Software Engineering.
I would be delighted to supervise PhD students. My areas are financial economics, behavioural finance, econophysics and philosophy of economics/finance
