Introduction

After a Bachelor degree in Economics at the University of Namur and a Research Master jointly organized by the University of Warsaw and the Université Catholique de Louvain, I started my PhD in 2011 under the supervision of Romain Houssa. I allocate my time between Research and Teaching Assistant.

Additionally, I tutor around 10 students per year for the completion of their Master thesis.
