Biography

Welcome! 

I am a researcher at the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute in Florence.  In my dissertation, I look at social policies aiming at increasing employment rates in France and Germany and seek to identify under which conditions inclusive reforms were chosen over more stratifying options. 

Substansively, my research concentrates on the following areas:

  • Social and employment policy
  • European integration 
  • EU fiscal and monetary governance
  • Public Policy
  • French and German politics

I look at these issues from a political economy perspective, using a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods.

Between 2014 and 2020, I worked as a policy advisor to the UK Treasury,  the German development cooperation (GIZ), and the European Policy Centre. I also held lecturer positions at Pacific University (US) and Sciences Po Lille where I taught Political Economy in the EU.  Prior to that, I received MAs from the College of Europe, Sciences Po Lille and the University of M√ľnster and a graduate diploma in economics from Birkbeck University of London.

I enjoy the interaction with both students and policymakers, and try to regularly disseminate research findings, hoping these may also serve a wider debate.

Both my contact and list of publications are available on this page. Feel free to drop me a line if you share similar interests or wish to know more. Always keen for a nice stroll or a good coffee!
