Personal details

I joined the School of Business in September 2019. I studied Economics and Statistics at ENSAE Paris and I obtained a PhD at Sciences Po Paris. Before coming to the University of Leicester, I worked at Aix-Marseille School of Economics in France.


  • EC3000  Advanced Microeconomics
  • EC7071 Economics of Organization


Primary field: Labour Economics, Search and Matching Theory, Structural Econometrics

Secondary field: Urban Economics

My research investigates the economic consequences of job search decisions. I study in particular how search decisions explain empirical regularities in the geography of labour markets, and empirical patterns over the life cycle. My approach confronts theoretical models to microdata on employment. I have secured access to confidential administrative data from France.


I am willing to supervise students interested in Labour Economics, Search and Matching Theory or Urban Economics.
