About me

Welcome to my personal page, my name is Jamel Saadaoui. I am a teacher and researcher in social sciences interested in various topics related to international economics. On this page, I present my current and future research projects and I try to provide some information for the public and for my students. I sometimes write on Probability, Philosophy, Economics, and other topics with a macro perspective. I am currently focused on the interactions between geopolitical tensions and the economy.

I am currently a Senior Lecturer in Economics at the University of Strasbourg, and I am affiliated to the BETA laboratory for my research activities. I teach Economics and Statistics at the Faculty of Economics and Management, FSEG, of the University of Strasbourg. Besides, I have been an elected member of the National Council of Universities since 2016. I co-organize the Cournot Seminar, the main seminar of the BETA-Strasbourg since 2020. Recently, I have been elected to the board of trustees of the University of Strasbourg. I will pass my habilitation to supervise research on July 11, 2022. You can reach me at my professional address. You can find more information on my professional CV.
