Professor, Head of the Department of Economics and Social Sciences
I am full Professor of Economics, the Head of the departement of Economics and Social Sciences at Telecom Paris, Institut Polytechnique de Paris, and Academic Fellow at Institut Louis Bachelier. My research is interested in digital economics and more precisely in how digital technologies are transforming the finance industry (digital payments, cryptocurrencies, artificial intelligence) in developed and developing countries (financial inclusion).
I collaborate with colleagues in Economics, Statistics and Computer sciences from universities, public institutions and private research companies. Beyond academic journals, some of my works have been published in central banks' working paper series such as the European Central Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, the Bank of Canada, De Nederlandsche Bank, the Deutsche Bundesbank, the Austrian Central Bank, and the Colombian Central Bank.
I am the co-founder of the Chair 'Digital Finance' (with Marianne Verdier, Univ. Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas) in partnership with Institut Louis Bachelier, Cartes Bancaires CB, La Banque Postale, and Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations. I also received a grant for 4 years from the ANR to do research on "Explainable AI for Anti-Money Laundering" with Winston Maxwell (Law) and Stéphan Clémençon (Applied Mathematics) in partnership with PwC, Dataiku, and ACPR/Banque de France.
