I am Assistant Professor at Montpellier Business School, researching how we can organize for and make sense of the grand challenges of our time, such as climate change, inequality, and health, to reach the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
I received my PhD in Business Administration from ESSEC Business School, Cergy, France, after studies in Germany, Spain, USA, and Canada.
My thesis on “The Roles of Discourse, Legitimacy and Power in Enabling and Hindering Institutional Change towards Sustainability” received the Innovation, Science, Technology and Society (IS²IT) Scholarship, a grant of 102 200€ awarded to outstanding PhD candidates by the Institute for Research on Innovation and Society (IFRIS) of the Paris regional government. The Society for Business Ethics granted me the emerging scholar founder’s award in 2015.
Before my academic career I worked in media and advertising, strategic marketing, sustainable product innovation, and consulting. These experiences fuel my research expertise on strategic communication and sustainability.
