He holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Sciences with a regional focus on the Middle East and the Mediterranean, and a master’s degree in Economics and Public Policy from Sciences Po Paris. His master’s thesis was on the topic of empirically estimating intergenerational cultural transmission, and studied more specifically the persistence of far-right political preferences in France since the late 19th century.

His primary research areas of interest are public, development, urban, and input-output economics, and he makes use of microdata as well as randomized controlled trials with the aim of contributing to evidence-based policymaking.

He previously worked as a research assistant at the Department of Economics of Sciences Po Paris, and interned in macroeonomic modelling and forecasting at BBVA Research.
