I hold a Ph.D. in economics from Lille University (LEM-CNRS). My Ph.D. thesis, written under the supervision of Pr. Hubert Jayet, is titled: Theory and empirical evidence on contemporary international migration. In this thesis, I tackle the following research questions: What determines migration? Do trade and FDI impact migration flows? Conversely, to what extent do migrants foster trade and FDI?
My current research focuses on the impact of foreign employment on firms’ outcomes and natives’ wages. I also study the determination of immigration policies and the potential benefits from policy coordination across countries. My work is both theoretical and empirical. My empirical studies are mainly based on firm-level data.
Since May 2018, I coordinate and contribute to the ANR-DFG project NaWaCC (How Immigration Impacts Natives’ Wages: Investigating Cross-Country Differences) funded by the French and the German research agencies for three years. More information about the project can be found here.
