Following training as a technical agricultural engineer from the Pôle agronomique of Dijon (currently Agrosup-Dijon), I obtained a diploma of further studies (DEA) in economic sciences at the University of Dijon.  I then joined in 1989 the Union Mutualiste Sociale de l’Ouest, based in Rennes as an instructor on agricultural policy and social and health policy.  From 1992 to 1997, I was the structure manager, in particular in charge of policy coordination for the MSA funds of the Greater West and the training of its administrators. In 1997 I was recruited at the Ecole Nationale de la Santé Publique in a economics of social protection and health lecturer position. At the same time I became involved in research on public economy in health, which allowed me to present a thesis in economic sciences on the efficacy of health insurance policies in 2008.  In 2011, I was elected and then nominated director of the human and social sciences and health behaviour department of the EHESP, function that I undertake while preserving approximately a quarter of my time for lecturing and research activities.


My research activities are mainly developed around the analysis of health policies and in particular on the contribution of the national health insurance to the efficacy of these policies.  In this context, I'm also interested in the position of complementary private health insurance and its interactions with the compulsory national health insurance, in a national perspective and also in terms of comparative international analysis.


My expert assessment activities currently concern the economic interest of the involvement of guesthouses for the families of hospitalised patients in the care provision pathway and more specifically their contribution to the outpatient reception of patients in pre- or post-hospitalisation situation.


My lecturing activities mainly concern the general organisation of health systems, the situation and evolution of health expenses, social protection and its economic environment as well as the public regulations applied in these domains. The lecturing is addressed to students in the statutory sectors as well as students in various masters.
