Welcome on my webpage!


   I am currently Senior Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant/Associate Professor) at the School of Management & Business at King’s College, London. I was previously Assistant Professor (Lecturer) in Business Economics at the University of Bath. I also hold an appointment as Research Fellow of the Professional Service Firms Group at the University of Oxford, and am an affiliated faculty at HEC Paris (Society and Organization Research Center). I obtained my PhD from HEC Paris, a MPhil from Sciences Po and a Master from Audencia Nantes. Before joining academia I worked in the investment banking industry, and in lobbying and international organizations in London, Washington DC and Paris.


    My research interests mainly lies at the intersection of economic sociology, organization theory and ethics. I look at negative social evaluations (stigma, disapproval) and their antecedents (misconduct, norm violation) in the context of professional service firms (investment banks, audit firms) and cultural industries (theaters, museums). My research has been published or is forthcoming in top outlets

  1. -in management and organization theory (Academy of Management Journal, the Academy of Management Review (2015), Journal of Business Ethics (2015a, 2015b) and Journal of Management Inquiry),

  2. -in sociology (Work, Employment & Society)

  3. -in practitioner oriented outlets such as Harvard Business Review.


    My dissertation work has been finalist for the EGOS Grigor McClelland Dissertation award and obtained the Roland Calori award of the best young scholar. In 2015, I was shortlisted by the Financial Times and McKinsey for the Bracken Bower Prize of the best young author in management. I have also been featured in the Telegraph, The Guardian, the Washington Post, AlJazeera, L’Humanité, BBC Radio London , Folha and on Radio Canada.
