I am an Economist at the Paris School of Economics and a Research Fellow at the International Migration Economics Chair and Institut Convergences Migrations. My current research focuses on the evaluation of social and economic integration mechanisms for vulnerable populations, with a particular focus on refugees and the public policies dedicated to them.

I managed the largest ever survey of refugees in France - the survey on The Origin and Prospects of Refugees in France (OPReF) - which is now in its final phase and will be available in autumn 2023.

After receiving my PhD (2017) from PSE/Paris I, I worked for several years as an economist at the French Treasury, where I built models and analyses on short-term forecasts for the offices of the President of the Republic and the Minister of the Economy. In particular, I worked on the effect of COVID19 on the structure of the French economy. With my team, we have been at the forefront of drafting 4 rectifying finance bills in 2020.
