Biography

Since July 2019 I am associate professor at HEC Paris and a CEPR reserch affiliate. I am on leave from Banque de France where I was senior economist in the monetary policy division. I had been affiliate professor at Paris School of Economics and an Economist in the Monetary Policy Research division at the European Central Bank. I held post-doc positions at the European Univesity Institute and Columbia University.

My research interest are in Macroeconomics and Monetary Economics, with a particular focus on the economic impact of frictions in the transmission of information.

I am author of publications in the Review of Economic Studies, the Journal of Monetary Economics and the American Economic Journal: Macroeconomics among others.
