Due to personal issues, I had to temporarily pause my scientific activity in 2020. I hope to resume it once said issues will be completely solved (which they are in the process to).

I used to be a PhD candidate at the Bureau of Economic Theory and Applications (BETA), in Nancy and Strasbourg (France). While my thesis is virtually finished, I have no idea when (and even if) I'll be able to defend it. In the meantime I have launched my own company called Aléryon Science. It offers online publications on technical and scientific subjects and data science consulting services.

My primary research interests are agent-based modeling in economics, logology and non-monetary incentives. I'm also interested in personnel economics and the diffusion of opinions.

On top of my research, after six years of teaching experience, I also have an extensive experience in economics outreach, science communication and popularization.

Feel free to send me an email at My average respond time is somewhere between 2 and 450 business days.
