Director for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs


I am the Director of the Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs (ELS) at the OECD since 2013 where I'm responsible for the design, management and co-ordination of the activities of ELS covering Employment, Labour, Migration, Health, Skills, Gender and Tackling Inequalities. I joined the OECD in 1991 and led several large-scale projects, including: “Implementing the OECD Jobs Strategy”; the “Sources of Economic Growth”; and contributed to others including “The Policy Challenges of Population Ageing". From 2002 to 2006 I was at the World Bank as the labour market advisor and lead economist in charge of the Bank-wide programme of Employment and Development. I returned to the OECD in 2006 as the Head of Division in charge of Japan, Korea, Mexico, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, China and India. In 2008, I moved back to ELS as the Head of the Employment Analysis and Policy Division and the editor of the Employment Outlook . In 2010, I became the Deputy Director of ELS. I hold a PhD in Economics from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (Paris) and an M.Sc. in Economics from the London School of Economics and Political Science. I have published extensively in academic journals, including in the American Economic Review, the Economic Journal, Economic Policy, Labour Economics and the International Journal of Industrial Organisation and edited several books in the fields of: labour economics; economic growth; industrial organization.
