Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at Université de Montréal.
My research applies Microeconomics and Industrial Organization to Public Policy.

I am thrilled to be joining McGill University as a post-doctoral researcher this summer!

My job market paper analyzes consumer preferences for cannabis and how they are affected by legalization. I use original crowd-sourced data on black-market cannabis throughout the US between 2000-2019, as well as detailed administrative data on legal retail sales and consumption micro-data in the state of Washington. Reduced-form and structural estimation of consumers' and suppliers' responses to policy change provide insight to build policy recommendations.

My other projects consist in theoretical modeling of consumers' preferences for sin goods (one project focuses on illegal cannabis as well, while the other discusses illegal migration) and how these respond to risk and to the availability of legal alternatives.
