Welcome!

I am a last year PhD candidate and I study Economic Geography.

I rely on both data and theory to study economic outcomes. You will find here my research and outreach.

New book : The Employment and the Territory.


Projects

Geography of the Labor Market
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, slides). I am curently working on the evolution of urban organisation : Where do the jobs and workers sort within cities ? I sum up the main issue in a press article, Le Monde.

Global Income Dynamics
What is the dynamic of income ?
Why is inequality rising in some countries and flat in others?

I am part of an international research initiative on income dynamics (site, conference). For France, we use administrative data to study the whole income distribution, over time and across space.

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 Facebook groups, Change.org signatures, Blockades. We contribute both to the public debate (Le Monde, IPP) and academic research (CEPR, Revue Économique).
