Research Activities


The aim of my research is to study the long-term relationship between gender equality and economic growth. To do so, I rely on insights from sociologists, demographers, historians and anthropologists, even if my approach remains that of an economist specialized in cliometrics.  As a main area of expertise, I focus on the iconic case of France – in a European comparative perspective – using transversal and longitudinal data, ranging from the 18th century.

My research is stimulated by a twofold motivation: on the one hand, the conviction that  the understanding of comparative economic development today requires a global view of the entire process of development; on the other hand, that  the  promotion of gender equality and the economic and social empowerment of women is essential to achieve sustainable development.
