He holds a Master (by research) in Sociology from the University of Nancy 2 with focus on social exclusion/inclusion, professional integration of young unqualified as well as on industrial relations in Luxembourg. He started working as a computer specialist at LISER in 1998 before changing 2003 to the "Population and Employment" (former PSELL) department where he worked on social exclusion with emphasis on homelessness as well as on professional integration. Other research interests are social dialogue in enterprises as well as the role of trade unions in the integration of immigrant workers. He participated in the peer review program of the European Commission on homelessness (2004 and 2005) as well as on over-indebtedness (2006). He was also a national expert in different European Observatories: in the field of homelessness (European Observatory of Homelessness / FEANTSA, 2003-2006), concerning the evaluation of employment policies (European Employment Observatory, 2007-2009) as well as in the field of industrial relations (European Industrial Relations Observatory / Eurofound. 2007-2010).
