Jean received his PhD in 2016 from Ecole Normale Supérieure – Ulm (ENS – Paris, France). Since then, he has been a postdoc at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP – Munich, Germany). He works on individual and collective decision-making, at the intersection of economics and philosophy. His work in this area is motivated by questions in the philosophy of economics, the philosophy of psychology, and the general philosophy of science. In particular, he has worked on the measurement of beliefs, the measurement of preferences, and the nature of risk attitudes. He also has interests in the general philosophy of science (especially measurement theory) and the history of micro-economic ideas. While in Pittsburgh, he will be focusing on research interests he recently developed in social epistemology and social choice theory.
Upon finishing his Center post-doc, Jean became a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy. In fall 2021 he will start work as an Associate Professor of Philosophy of Economics at the University of Oxford and Tutorial Fellow at Jesus College, Oxford.
