I hold a PhD from Université Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, France awarded in 1993. I have held positions at Keele University (UK), Laval University in Canada and Queen's University Belfast. I acted as an associate editor for the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A (Statistics in Society, 2010-2013) and between 2013 and 2016 I was appointed to the Advisory Research Board of the Danish National Centre for Social Research, www.sfi.dk. My research interests are in empirical micro-economics and econometrics, labour and public economics and public finance.
