I am an applied microeconomist, interested in understanding the behaviour of individuals, both theoretically and empirically, with the aim of informing policy. Part of my research focuses on modelling intra-household behaviour in order to understand how individuals interact to reach the decisions whose consequences we see. I am particularly interested in applying these models in the context of developing economies. I also have a long-standing interest in consumption and demand, which has informed both my research and policy oriented work, conducted for UK government bodies. I also work on health.
I was educated in France, where I obtained a PhD from Delta-Ehess. I am a professor in the Department of Economics at UCL and a research fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
