I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the Center for Economic Research on Governance, Inequality and Conflict within the École normale supérieure de Lyon. My research spans political economy, (macro) development and economic history.
I am interested in a variety of issues related to long-run economic and institutional development, including the political economy of taxation, military recruitment and resistance to state expansion, the interaction between demographic transition and structural change, and historical living standards.

(Current PhD projects)
While being a civil servant scholar at École normale supérieure, I completed a Master’s degree in economics at Paris School of Economics. Before that, I followed a liberal arts curriculum, including a Bachelor degree in philosophy at the Sorbonne. Since starting my PhD at ENS de Lyon thanks to a government scholarship, I have made short visits to the Scuola Sant’Anna in Pisa, the Harris School in Chicago and the University of Oxford.
My surname is pronounced /ɑ̃gø.aʁ/. Originally from Normandy, it is related to a surname found throughout the Germanic language area (with variants such as Engelhardt or Inglehart) and was probably introduced into northwest France as a result of medieval Norman settlement.
.tf is the Internet domain for the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, which happened to be available.
