Welcome to my professional webpage!

CNRS Research Professor

I am an economist, tenured research Professor at CNRS (French national centre for scientific research) and Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne (CNRS, University of Paris 1, Panthéon Sorbonne).

Research Interests 

Health economics (JEL Code: I00):

  • Health behaviors (JEL Code: I12)
  • Health and Inequality (JEL Code: I14)
  • Health and economic development (JEL Code: I15)
  • Public and Global Health (JEL Code: I18)
  • Economic Epidemiology

Population economics (JEL Code: J10):

  • Demographic trends, Mortality, Quality-Quantity (JEL Code: J10; J11; J13)

Development economics (JEL Code: O10):

  • Human Capital and development (JEL Code: I00; I20; I21; I25)
  • Poverty and well-being (JEL Code: I30)


Most of my scientific contributions have involved the analysis of the joint dynamics of economics and epidemiology from both empirical and theoretical perspectives in different contexts (North and South). I am also interested in Health and Human Capital formation.

I use a variety of methods: previously collected secondary data (historical or contemporary), traditional custom surveys, natural and field experiments classically used in public policy evaluations, statistical and econometric methods, and stylized theoretical models.
