Welcome on my homepage

I’m an Associate Professor of Strategy at ESSCA School of Management where I have been a faculty member since 2014. I completed my PhD in 2009 at the University of Paris Dauphine.

My research interest lies in the fields of Strategy and Qualitative Research Methods. More precisely, I focus on the practices of Strategy and on the development of intellectual movements in Strategy. My research has been published in academic journals such as British Journal of Management, M@n@gement or French Journal of Management. I also wrote several chapters and books on Qualitative Research Methods.

I teach and coordinate courses in Strategic Management and Research Methods. At ESSCA, I’m in charge of the Master’s thesis process in which 650+ students and 120+ supervisors are enrolled every year.

I’m also a certified NVivo trainer (qualitative data analysis software) and my clients include research teams in France an abroad as well as private, public and non-governmental organizations.


ESSCA is an AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS French Business School. Found in 1909, ESSCA has campuses in Angers, Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Aix, Budapest and Shanghai. It offers a wide portfolio of programmes and degrees in management.
