I am a doctoral researcher affiliated to the European Center for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics (ECARES), a research center of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). I am also a research fellow at the Fund for Scientific Research (F.R.S.-FNRS).

My research lies at the intersection of international and public economics and relates, to a lesser extent, to business and labor economics. As an applied economist, I exploit firm-level data to analyze the causes, methods, and consequences of multinationals' tax avoidance.

I have presented my findings at numerous institutions and formulated policy recommendations for the French Council of Economic Analysis and CEPII. Moreover, I have won various awards, including the Best Research Work in International Investment and Development Award from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the Academy of International Business (AIB).

As a PhD candidate, I realize the importance of interactions among young researchers. That is why I joined the board of the European Association of Young Economists (EAYE), which promotes and disseminates cutting-edge research of young economists on all topics within the field. Furthermore, working on a multidisciplinary subject shows me that communication with scholars from other fields is pivotal. It provides different perspectives and broadens horizons. In this regard, I am honored to be a member of the planning team of the Graduate Student International Political Economy (GSIPE) group. The GSIPE group gathers talented junior researchers from both economics and political science and organizes regular seminars and thematic workshops on international political economy broadly defined.

Before starting my PhD, I studied at ENSAE Paris, Université Paris-Saclay, Paris School of Economics, and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, where I completed an Engineering degree in statistics, an MRes in economics, and a BSc in econometrics.
