I'm mostly teaching Revenue Management either at the ENAC, ENSAI or abroad (Italy, China). I have recently redesigned my way of teaching by introducing serious economics games sessions thanks to the online platform. Since 2016, I'm also teaching Data visualisation in the master Big Data at ENSAI (10 hours).
