Faculty 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) and in the Master programme in Quantitative Sociology and Demography at the Institut Polytechnique de Paris. I hold 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.
