About Me

I am a postdoctoral fellow from the Swiss National Science Foundation, based in Oxford University for the year 2021. I hold a PhD in Economics and History from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva.

My research interests are 19th and 20th century financial history, monetary economics and banking. My current projects focus on measuring the rise and fall of international reserve currencies under the Bretton Woods era, especially the decline of sterling, and analyzing central banks’ monetary policies through the case of the French central bank in the late 19th century.
