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 entitled: 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?
I am currently working as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, in the research area The Global Division of Labour. I am also affiliated to the Kiel Centre for Globalization.
My research focuses on the impact of foreign employment on firms’ outcomes and natives’ wages. I also work on 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.
From May 2018, part of my work will be to coordinate and to contribute to the ANR-DFG project NaWaCC (How Immigration Impacts Natives’ Wages: Investigating Cross-Country Differences) funded by the French and German research agencies for three years.
