About me


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 historical measurement of living standards and inequality, public economics, population economics and political economy (in no particular order of preference). My dissertation was a finalist by the EHA for the Allan Nevins Award given to the best dissertation in North American economic history.

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 also have forthcoming articles in Canadian Journal of Economics, Journal of Private Enterprise and Journal of Economic History. I have also published a book on Canadian economic history, in French, which has since been translated into English and published by Palgrave McMillan.
