Bio

I am currently an associate professor in philosophy of economics and history of economics thought at the pluridisciplinary laboratory TRIANGLE in the University Lyon 2. I am also affiliated to the Academy of Finland Centre of Excelence in the Philosophy of the Social Sciences (TINT). My topics of interest are: development economics, experimental economics, philosophy of economics and evidence-based policy.
My research focuses on how development economics, experimental economics and evidence-based policy interact together in order to fight poverty, which implies studying the methodology of these sub-fields and their disciplinary transfers. Therefore, philosophy of economics plays at least two roles; a first one to analyze such interactions and their disciplinary transfers, and a second one to question the implications of these interactions and transfers.
I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, under the supervision of Prof. Annie L. Cot, on February 2014. In my dissertation, “The J-PAL’s Experimental Approach: An Epistemological Turn?” I examine the recent use of randomized experiments in development economics and provide an epistemological analysis of such approach.
