I am a Searle Research Associate at Northwestern University and an Associate Researcher at Cerna Mines ParisTech. Before joining Northwestern University, I was a PhD student in the « Law and economics of patents » group under the supervision of François Lévêque and Yann Ménière. My PhD thesis, successfully defended on September 24, 2012, deals with the empirical analysis of standardization, and in particular the role of essential patents. Please find more information on my current work at the website of the Searle Center, Northwestern University.
