Florian is a first-year PhD student in Sustainable Development, particularly interested in development and environment economics. His on-going research projects include a randomized control trial in Ivory Coast investigating how pressure to redistribute income to members of the kin network affects labor productivity (with Supreet Kaur, Aletheia Donald and Eliana Carranza) and a study of the weather-migration-violence nexus in Latin America.

Prior to joining Columbia University, Florian earned a master in economics from the Paris School of Economics and spent a semester as graduate visiting student in UC Berkeley's PhD program in Economics.
