Born and raised in Saint-Lambert on the south shore of Montreal in Canada, I completed my Ph.D in economic history at the London School of Economics (LSE) in June 2016. My research centers on the measurement of living standards and inequality, population economics and political economy.
I also have a master’s degree from the LSE. I received my undergraduate degree from Montreal University in economics and politics. I am currently at Texas Tech University as a post-doctoral fellow. In the past, I taught microeconomics and macroeconomics at HEC Montréal at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
My articles have appeared in Economics & Human Biology, Journal of Interdisciplinary History, Historical Methods, Journal of Population Research, Economics Bulletin, Agricultural History Review, Essays in Economic and Business History, Journal of Business and Management, Independent Review and Economic Affairs. I have also published a book on Canadian economic history, in French, which has since been translated into English and published by Palgrave McMillan.
My wider-public articles have been published in La Presse, Calgary Herald, Journal de Montréal, Journal de Québec, National Post, Financial Post, Globe & Mail, Le Devoir, The Gazette, Le Soleil, Vancouver Sun and Huffington Post Canada.
