    I am an Associate Professor in Economics at IMT Atlantique (formerly ENST Bretagne, Télécom Bretagne, a French "Grande Ecole" graduate engineering school).

    My research interests span the field of Economics of Information Security, Digital Markets and Digital Economy. More specifically, I am especially interested in understanding how the characteristics of a market, the interactions between different actors and their incentives influence cybersecurity and privacy issues. In my PhD thesis, I focused on the interactions between different cybersecurity stakeholders (software vendors, users, security firms, white-hat hackers, etc.) and the provision of software security. I am also interested in emerging markets related to information security and privacy (e.g. bug bounty platforms, consent management providers...). In my work, I mostly do empirical analysis using quantitative tools.

    Before joining IMT Atlantique, I worked for the Governance and Regulation Chair of Paris Dauphine University as a post-doctoral fellow until August 2020. Prior to this I completed my PhD in Economics in November 2019 at Institut Polytechnique de Paris, Télécom Paris, advised by Marc Bourreau. I hold two master degrees, one in Information Systems Engineering (Institut Mines Télécom BS) and one in Network Industries and Digital Economy (Paris Dauphine University). Before entering academia I had a varied consulting and auditing career in Information System Management for insurance and banking industry.
