Bio

I am a CNRS Research Fellow at the Centre for Research in Economics and Statistics (CREST) where I head the Department in Quantitative Sociology. In my research I use mainly quantitative methods to explore questions related to inequalities in consumption and lifestyles, environmental practices and discrimination from historical and comparative perspectives. I also have a developing interest in epistemology, the construction of social classifications and cross-pollinisation between scientific fields.

I teach regular classes at the graduate level at the Ecole nationale de statistique et de l'administration économique (ENSAE) which is located at the campus of Institut Polytechnique de Paris.

I hold a B.A. degree in International Politics and Economics from Middlebury College, a D.E.A. in Sociology from OSC/Sciences Po and a Ph.D. in Sociology from Stanford University.
