I am full professor of political science at Sciences Po Paris, director of the CEVIPOF (CNRS) and associate researcher within the Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire d’Evaluation des Politiques Publiques (LIEPP). Between 2006 and 2013, I was associate professor at the University of Montreal in the political science department. Previously, I spent one year (2005/06) at the European University Institute in Florence (Italy) as research post-doc fellow. I have defended my Ph.D. thesis in economics at the University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne within the Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne (CNRS) in 2004. My research interests range from political economy to political behavior, without neglecting public policies, fiscal policies, and statistical methods. I teach courses in Political Economy, International Political Economy and Statistical Methods. Between 2011 and 2013, I was director of the European Union Center for Excellence (University of Montreal/McGill University). Since 2010, I am associate editor of the Canadian Public Policy journal and French Politics.
