Informality, migration, spatial sorting, place-based policies, structural transformation, climate change

I am a PhD candidate at CREST, Ecole Polytechnique, Institut Polytechnique de Paris working under the supervision of Pr. Benoit Schmutz since September 2021.

My research lies at the intersection of urban, labour, and development economics. More specifically, I focus on how informal housing and informal employment relate to key challenges faced by cities in the developing world (e.g. migration, structural transformation, climate change). I am also interested in spatial sorting and place-based policies.
