A Brief Biography


I am a professor of Economics at Harvard University. My research focuses on the optimal design of the tax system and public policies, taking into account labor market features, more complex social preferences, and long-term effects such as human capital acquisition and innovation by people and firms. Part of this work is centered around the study of empirical effects of taxation of individuals and firms on inequality, top incomes, migration, human capital, and innovation. I also explore how people form their social preferences towards redistribution using large-scale online survey and experiment tools.

Since May 2018, I am also part of the French Council of Economic Advisers (Conseil d'Analyse Economique). 

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from MIT in 2014 and was a junior fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows 2014-2016 before joining the Harvard Department of Economics in July 2016.
