I'm a pre-doctoral fellow at the Paris School of Economics and SciencesPo Paris. At the moment, I work with Nicolas Jacquemet, Emeric Henry and Roberto Galbiati on the impact of moral reminders on pro-social behaviour (such as donations, volunteering, truth-telling...). More specifically, we look at the role of social and self-image concerns in decision-making: do individuals choose to act altruistically because they are, because they wish to be or because they wish to appear altruistic in front of others?

I also work in economics of education with Pierre Cahuc. I am currently evaluating the impact of private school openings on social diversity in middle schools using two-way fixed effect estimation. I eventually plan to apply experimental economics methods to better understand the drivers of students' access to schools. 

On a side note, I teach first-year economics tutorials at SciencesPo and master's level microeconomics at INSEAD. 

My master's thesis: Does school choice increase social segregation? Evidence from private schools opening in France between 2005 and 2019.
