Bio

I am an Associate Professor in Information Management at Tilburg University since 2023. Previously, I was a Full Professor in Economics at Télécom Paris, Institute Polytechnique. I obtained my PhD at KU Leuven in 2015 and my habilitation to direct research at University Paris 2 - Panthéon-Assas. 

I conduct empirical research at the intersection of economics and information systems. My research interests include studying how digital markets and platforms operate and how competition between and on them takes place. Examples of topics include the potential biases in recommendation systems, online labor platforms, and reputation mechanisms.

I have published papers on these topics in journals such as the Management Information Systems QuarterlyQuantitative Marketing and Economics, and Marketing Science. In addition to my current work, I have also conducted research on competition policy, and published papers in journals such as the American Economic Journal: Microeconomics.
