- I am a Ph.D. student in Economics at ECARES, Université Libre de Bruxelles. I hold a B.S.(4-year program) in Economics from U.L.B. (2002) and a M.A. in Quantitative Economics from ULB (2004).
My main research interests are Auction Theory, Microeconomics and Electronic Trading Platforms.
My current work has looked at auctions, both theoretically and empirically. My main training is in Economics but being a ”computer geek”, I have become interested in the way technology combines with mechanism design to open new areas of applications for market-based allocation mechanisms. I have also ventured in OR with my work on multi-attribute auctions. In the future, I would like to continue this line of research and moreover branch out in a fast developing area between computer sciences and economics: online mechanism design. My main objective for my future career is to enter the fascinating world of academic research and, hopefully, contribute to the accumulation of scientific knowledge.
As teaching assistant, the way I work is to constantly introduce new research results in my courses to guarantee a continuous up-to-date training of my students. This is what I have been doing as a teaching assistant for many years especially in the fields of Mathematics (for economists), Microeconomics and Management Information Systems and it appears to have been particularly efficient.
