I am an INRA Research Professor at the Paris School of Economics since 2015. In 2013-2014, I was a visiting professor at the Centre for Health Economics of Monash University (Australia). Between 2001 and 2013, I was a research fellow at the research unit “Alimentation Sciences Sociales” of the French National Institute for Agronomic Research (INRA). I received my habilitation thesis from the Ecoles des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in 2013, a Ph.D. in Economics from the University Paris-1 in 2000, and graduated as an engineer in 1996.
My research interests span a number of issues related to heath behaviours, consumption and public policies. Much of my work has been on improving the understanding of risky behaviours, through applied econometric studies on panel data or scanner data. In the food domain, I have specifically worked on identifying the heterogeneity of consumer price reactions. I have also published in 2013 a monography (in French) “Obesité, Santé Publique et Populisme Alimentaire”, which argues that nutritional policies should focus less on the demand side of food markets and more on the supply side. I have been recently appointed as a member of the Conseil National de l’Alimentation (National Food Council), which serves as an advisory council on food and agricultural issues for the French government.
