I am a social psychologist interested in education, group status and inequality.
I work at Université Clermont Auvergne, in France. I am co-responsible of the research team 2 of the LAPSCO (“Social behaviors and collective dynamics“) and responsible of the psychology master’s program (master PICCS).
I did my Ph.D. in experimental social psychology at Grenoble University in 2004, under the supervision of Fabrizio Butera and Gabriel Mugny. Subsequently, I conducted my post-doctoral research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (USA) under the supervision of Judith M. Harackiewicz. I was appointed as an assistant professor at Université Clermont Auvergne in 2006, where I have been working ever since.
In my research, I am interested in group inequalities, particularly in the context of school. We investigate how the role played by the education system in society affects the motivations, goals and preferences of teachers, students and their parents.
