I am a researcher specializing in Health Economics, Computational Methods and Applied Macroeconomics. I currently serve as a postdoctoral fellow at the Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at the University of Southern California.
I obtained my Ph.D in economics from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in 2013. My dissertation uses theory and computational methods to study the demand for care and predict policy outcomes in public healthcare systems and in the United States. Between 2009 and 2012, I was funded by the Vanier Scholarship, awarded by the Canada Graduate Scholarship program. During the same period, I assisted former Prime Minister of Quebec Bernard Landry in developing a new course (ECO1061 – Quebec’s Economy) and worked as a teaching assistant for two Ph.D. courses (ECO9015 – Dynamic Analysis Methods and ECO9001 – Avanced Microeconomics II). In 2011, I was among 360 scholars selected internationally to meet Nobel prize laureates at the Lindau Meeting on Economic Science.
