I am a Postdoctoral researcher at ECARES, ULB.

I have a PhD in Economics from PSE. I have a MA in Public Policies and Development Economics from PSE as well as a MA in Data Science from ENSAE Paris-Tech.

My primary research fields are Development Economics and Political Economy.

In current projects, I work on education quality in developing countries, with a focus on primary and pre-school in Sub-Saharan Africa and South-East Asia. Specifically, my research aims at identifying better levers to increase learning achievements.

I also investigate the role of money in politics, both in developed and developing countries. I study the causal impact of campaign spending on election outcomes in multiparty democracies.
