After successfully completing a MA in Sociology and a MA in philosophy at the ULB (Université libre de Bruxelles), I obtained an advanced master's degree in 'Quantitative analysis in social sciences' at the KuBrussel (Katholiek Universiteit Brussel). Then, I worked for 4 years as a statistician and a database manager at the French-speaking community of Belgium. One of my main tasks was the assessment of educational outcomes.
From 2012 to 2016, I made a thesis entitled "Little Matthew has also chosen the wrong school: secondary analyses of compositional effect in a segregated educational system" at the Group for research on Ethnic Relation, Migration and Equality (GERME).
Currently, I work on the ERC project “Equal Opportunities in educational systems with high levels of social and ethnic segregation” (ERC Grant Agreement 28360).
My main fields of interest are quantitative analysis, school segregation and educational assessment.
