Informations complémentaires

I am a behavioral scientist with a passion for taking research out of the laboratory to confront the real world. I’ve spent the last 6 years studying the decision-making processes and incentives architecture that help people to adopt environmentally friendly behaviors.

My roots are in academic research as an experimental economist researcher at Université Côte d’Azur University, where I received my Ph.D. Degree in 2018, with the best thesis prize distinction from DESPEG doctoral school.
There I used behavioral economics to study cooperative behaviors and the expression of social preferences by mobilizing the tools of experimental economics in the laboratory, field surveys, and experimetrix.

I also spent time conducting research on the link between behavioral economics and theories related to the adoption of new technologies. At the consumer level, I investigate the role of soft incentives such as nudges and boosts in adopting new digital services. I recently extended my research to the organizational level with the study of the role of new blockchain technology in data-sharing cooperation in an ecosystem.
At the organizational level, I am interested in the role of new technologies like smart contracts and blockchain in cooperation between companies.

My new challenge is to bring my expertise into the market and help companies forge stronger relationships with their customers and their partners. I would like to collaborate with passionate partners whether fast-growth startups or established corporations.
