Teaching and research

My teaching and research are mainly in the field of international development economics. This specialisation is in line with the Master's degree in "Development Economics" offered at the School of Economics and the research done at CERDI (UMR CNRS 6587). My approach is that of applied economics, which consists in rdeploying econometric work on solid theoretical bases. My interests lie at the interface between the economics of development and the economics of natural resources and the environment.

My teaching ranges from Bachelor 1 to Master 2. I am responsible for several tracks of the Master's degree in Development Economics taught at the School of Economics:

  • "Sustainable development" since its creation in 2005,
  • "Development economics" (english track) since 2016,
  • "Glodep - Global development studies" approved by the European Commission in 2016 (Erasmus + programme, Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Program). This programme, run by Palacky University (Czech Republic), is one of UCA's two Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses (

My research work on developing countries (Ideas) has received specific financial support: Ation Concertée Incitative (Ministry of Research) on deforestation in developing countries (2005 - 2009) and Collaborative Research Project funded by the ANR (ANR REVE 2014 2018).
