I obtained my PhD in Economics from Toulouse School of Economics, under the supervision of Jean-Paul Azam. My dissertation consists in three essays on the economics of HIV/AIDS. I did a post-doc at the Population Studies Center at the University of Michigan in 2010-2011. From 2010 to 2014, I was a consultant at the World Bank for the DECRG: Human Development and for the Social Protection Unit.
My previous work focused on health and population issues in Africa, including individual decisions regarding the risk of HIV-infection in a sample of sub-Saharan countries, and concerning the determinants and impacts of women’s empowerment and cooperation within couples, as well as the importance of nonverbal communication in economic interactions, and poverty.
