Economics of innovationenvironmental economicsnetworks and complex systemsapplied econometrics

François studied economics in France at the Universities of Clermont-Ferrand and Strasbourg, focusing on innovation and development. He then moved to the the Netherlands for his Ph.D at UNU-MERIT, Maastricht University. In his thesis, he worked on theoretical and empirical models of knowledge networks as self-organizing bipartite graphs. He joined LIMS in February 2014 to work on the GROWTHCOM project with Doyne Farmer.
