After Master in Statistics at the National School for Statistics and Information Analysis in France, I did a PhD in Health Economics at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland within the Health Economics and Research Unit. Then I worked as assistant professor at the University of Aix-Marseille.

Before joining Ehesp I worked at Institute for Research and Information in Health Economics.


My master thesis was published in a peer reviewed journal (here) concerns the alcohol consumption in Sweden, then I worked on the recruitment and retention of staff by hospitals in England and France (here and here). Over the last two years, I started working on the effect of supply of health care on the consumption. Finally, I started working on the migrants' health theme within a European project funded by the European Commission.

From arriving at Ehesp I started working on the migrants' health theme with partners at doctors of the world (WP) and at Aix-Marseille Université (Here). I also work on a project funded by the European Commission (here).

From May 2018 I am a fellow at Migration Institute.


I teach health economics for non-spectialists at the School of public Health. I also teach statistics within the Master of Public Health (MPH).
