Professor, Head of the Department of Economics and Social Sciences
My research is interested in how digital technologies are transforming the finance industry (digital payments, cryptocurrencies, artificial intelligence) in developed and developing countries (financial inclusion) as well as the media and advertising industries. My research traverses the fields of economics, social sciences, and data science.
I collaborate with colleagues in Economics, Statistics and Computer sciences from universities, public institutions and private research companies. Beyond academic journals, some of my recent 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) in partnership with Institut Louis Bachelier, Cartes Bancaires and La Banque Postale, and the interdisciplinary ANR Chair in Artificial Intelligence "Explainable AI for Anti-Money Laundering" with Winston Maxwell (Law) and Stéphan Clémençon (Applied Mathematics) in partnership with PWC, Bleckwen, and ACPR.
I develop several research programs with banks, payment card networks, and central banks to study how financial and technological innovations are transforming individual payment decisions, sectoral regulations and monetary policies.
