Welcome on my webpage!

    I am a Senior Lecturer in Organisation Theory and the Deputy Director of the MBA Programme at the Judge Business School and a Fellow in Sociology, Director of Studies in Management, at Girton College, both at the University of Cambridge. I teach organisational behavior and theory, and leadership in the business school and sociology in the human and social sciences undergraduate programme. Previously, I was a Senior Lecturer and Director of the MSc in International Management at King’s College, London. 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). In 2020, I published a book with Stanford University Press, entitled The Power of Being Divisive: Understanding Negative Social Evaluations (You can get it here), which was reviewed in the Financial Times. My research has been published or is forthcoming in journals in management and organization theory (Academy of Management Journal (2017, 2020), the Academy of Management Review (2015, 2018, 2019), Academy of Management Annals (2018), Organizational Research Methods (2017), Journal of Management Studies (2019), Human Relations (2019), Organization Theory (2020), Journal of Business Ethics (2015a, 2015b), British Journal of Management (2017), Business & Society (2019), European Journal of Marketing (2020) and Journal of Management Inquiry (2017), and in other fields such as sociology and psychology (Work, Employment & Society, 2018; Journal of Vocational Behavior, 2018) but also in practitioner oriented outlets such as Harvard Business Review (2015, 2017, 2019) and MIT Sloan Management Review (2020).

    I am an associate editor at Business & Society since early 2020 and I serve on various editorial boards. I previously co-edited M@n@gement, the open-access academic journal of the French Academy of Strategic Management (AIMS), co-financed by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique.

    In 2020, I was listed as one the 40 under 40 Best Business School professors by Poet&Quants, and one of the MBA professors to look out for in 2020 by Business Because.  Both in 2015 and 2019, I was shortlisted by the Financial Times and McKinsey for the Bracken Bower Prize of the best young author in management. I previously held a British Academy & Leverhulme Small Grant. Finally, my dissertation work has been finalist for the EGOS Grigor McClelland Dissertation award and obtained the Roland Calori award of the best young scholar.

 I write a regular column for Forbes. My work has also been featured in the Financial Times, The Economist, Telegraph, Le Monde, The Guardian, the Washington Post, The Economic Times AlJazeera, L’Humanité, BBC Radio London , Folha, Die Zeit and on Radio Canada, among others.
