I am a PhD candidate in economics affiliated to the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the European Center for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics (ECARES). 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. More specifically, I combine methods from economics, statistics, and accounting to analyze the causes, methods, and consequences of multinationals' tax avoidance.

I have presented my findings at numerous academic, international, and public institutions, and I have formulated policy recommendations for the French Council of Economic Analysis and CEPII. Moreover, I have received various awards, notably from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the Academy of International Business (AIB).

As a PhD candidate, I have realized the importance of interactions among young scholars. They result in constructive feedback, provide different perspectives, and broaden our horizons. This is why I have joined the board of the European Association of Young Economists (EAYE). The EAYE promotes and disseminates cutting-edge research of young economists on all topics within the field. Working on a multidisciplinary subject has also shown me that collaboration and communication with researchers from different fields are fruitful. 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.
