Ph.D. Institution

University of Toulouse, France


I did my undergraduate studies in Economics and Econometrics at the University of Maastricht, and then joined the Ph.D. programme of the University of Toulouse in 2001. After four years of coursework and research in Toulouse, I spent one year at CREST in Paris to complete my thesis.
My main field of research is theoretical industrial organization, but I am also interested in contract theory, applied game theory, and other fields of microeconomics. My Ph.D. thesis, which I wrote under the supervision of Patrick Rey, contains the following four papers:

  • “Optimal Collusion under Cost Asymmetry”

  • “Delivered Pricing and the Effect of Horizontal Differentiation on Optimal Collusion”

  • “On the Signalling and Feedback Effects of Umbrella Branding”

  • “Slotting Allowances and Conditional Payments” (joint with Patrick Rey and Thibaud Vergé)

I had the opportunity to present my work at a number of international conferences, among them a CEPR conference on “Collusion and Cartels” in 2004, the World Congress of the Econometric Society in 2005, and the European Winter of the Econometric Society in 2005. The members of my thesis committee were Luis Cabral (NYU), Dan Kovenock (Purdue), David Martimort (Toulouse), Patrick Rey (Toulouse) and Jean Tirole (Toulouse).
I have acted as a referee for the following journals: Economics Letters, Economic Theory, International Journal of Industrial Organization, Journal of Economics, and Journal of Economic Theory.
