I am currently an economist at the Joint Research Center of the European Commission in Ispra (Italy).

My areas of research include international trade, global value chains, sustainable finance and corporate finance.

I received my PhD in Economics from Aix-Marseille School of Economics in 2022, which was conducted within a CIFRE partnership with the trade credit insurer Coface. Prior to this, I obtained a M.Sc. from Paris-Dauphine University, and a B.A. and a M.Sc. from Sciences-Po Paris.
