After having received a PhD in Economics from the University of Montpellier, I have been a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Munich thanks to the Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND action. I am now an Assistant Professor of Economics at ENSAI.
My research primarily focuses on the demand and supply sides in the network industries. I use structural approaches and observational data to model consumer behavior. I also use various reduced form approaches to comment on the development of prices and variety of products in markets subjects to an evolving competitive, regulatory and technological environment.
I have taught - and I teach - courses in Industrial Organization, Digital Economics and Applied Econometrics.
I am a member of the Young Center for Advanced Studies of LMU Munich as well as a member of the French Association for Research in Digital Economics (AFREN).
