I am currently Associate professor in economics at Ecole Centrale Marseille and GREQAM.

My research interests lie in contract theory, especially risk-sharing, and in growth and productivity.
I teach Insurance economics, Game Theory and Industrial organization.

I currently head the Economics and Finance specialization at Ecole Centrale Marseille and the Finance and Insurance track of the Master Aix-Marseille School of Economics.

On this site, I provide the complete list of my works, the most recent versions of my working papers and the handouts of my lectures.

You can find my full CV in english here and in french there.
