Thesis title: La désinformation change, de manière significative, les attitudes et le comportement des citoyens – fake news?

As a Researcher at Kantar Public and PhD candidate, I study the impact of ‘fake news’ on public opinion and behaviours, using survey data and experimental methods. I am in particular interested in the extent to which false claims leads us to make sub-optimal decisions, both in the context of climate change but also elections. Prior to joining Kantar Public, I worked as a consultant for communications firm Ogilvy.

Recently, I have been working on a series of studies that explore the influence of fake news during the French Presidential election 2022.
