I am a senior analyst at Compass Lexecon, which I join in October 2022 to work on cartel litigation cases and merger clearance.

In my spare time, I enjoy doing some research. The latter revolves around corporate income taxation and tax avoidance, with a focus on multinational enterprises and foreign direct investments in tax havens. I combine methods from economics and statistics with insights from accounting, international business, and management to shed light on profit shifting patterns.

Before joining Compass Lexecon, I was a research fellow at the European Center for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics (ECARES) and at the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research (F.R.S.-FNRS). During these years, I presented my papers at various conferences and received several awards, notably from the United Nations (Best Research Work on International Investment and Development) and the EU Tax Observatory (Young Researcher Award). I also collaborated with public institutions. I worked as an external consultant for the United Nations and wrote policy notes for the French Council of Economic Analysis (CAE).

I hold a PhD in economics from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, an MRes in economics from the Institut Polytechnique de Paris, and an Engineering degree in statistics from ENSAE Paris.
