About

I am a historian of economics. My research aims at tracing the evolution of economic thought about financial markets through the 20th century. I use qualitative data (content analysis, private and administrative archives, oral history) and, more recently, quantitative data (bibliometric analysis and text mining).

I completed a Ph.D. in economics at the University of Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne in 2021; I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University. I work currently on three projects: (a) the emergence of the U.S. economic thought about speculation and its regulation during the interwar period, (b) a history of the concept of bubbles, with a special focus on the tulip mania, (c) building quantitative tools for measuring the impact of business schools on contemporary economics.
