Welcome to my home page.

I am working as an academic economist at INRA in the Economie Publique research unit, where I am a research fellow.

I am currently based in Washington, DC, where I am a visiting research fellow at IFPRI, in the division Market, Trade an Institutions.

My main research topic is the dynamics of agricultural markets. My work deals with two separate issues: the short-run and the long-run dynamics of agricultural markets. Regarding short-run issues, I study the causes of commodity prices volatility and the design of stabilization policies. On long-run issues, I work on global food security and international trade in agricultural goods.
