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). During 1 year, I worked on the same ERC project, entitled “Equal Opportunities in educational systems with high levels of social and ethnic segregation” (ERC Grant Agreement 28360).
Currently, I work as a Data Analyse and provider of statistical indicators at the Wallonie-Brussels Federation. My main fields of interest are educational assessment, school segregation and quantitative analysis.
