I am an Economist and I conduct research in economic geography, labor market, and social movements.
My thesis is on the Anatomy of the Suburban Metropolis.
I rely on both data and theory to study economic outcomes and spatial disparties.
On this website you will find more about my research and outreach.
New book : The Employment and the Territory.

Economic activity is highly unevently distributed accross space :
Why ? What impact on jobs and productivity ?
I co-autored a book
of synthesis on the topic (video
), awarded best economic book prize
by the Fench economic association (AFSE

Global Income Dynamics
Why is inequality rising in some countries and flat in others?
What is the impact of national policies on income dynamics?
I am part of an international research initiative on income dynamics (site
). For France, we use administrative data to study the whole income distribution, over time and across space, with a particular focus on the heterogeneous effect of national policies across genders and territories.
Social protests: the Gilets jaunes
The Gilets jaunes movement was unprecendented in France,
for its highly decentralized origins and its use of social media.
We brought together unique localized data on Blockades, Facebook groups and pages, Change.org signatures. We contribute both to the public debate (Le Monde
) and academic research (CEPR
