I am an Assistant Professor in Strategy and Sustainability at the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University, Montreal. I formerly held Fellowships in International Management at the King's College London School of Management and Business, as well as at the ESSEC Philanthropy Chair in France. I received a MS and Ph.D. in Management Strategy from ESSEC (2014), a doctorat en sciences de gestion from the Université de Cergy Pontoise and a BAS from York University, Toronto.
My research is based in organization theory and is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada. I am interested in how norms (e.g. environmentalism) are constructed and shaped into institutional pressures, and how organizations and individuals respond to such demands. I am currently engaged in a project on resilience in the townships of Cape Town, South Africa. My research has been published in Organization Studies, Regulation & Governance, Journal of Management Studies, IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management and Theory and Society. I have been the recipient of the 2018 JMSB Dean’s Award for distinguished scholarship, the 2014 Halloran Award in Business Ethics and the 2015 Syntec Prize. My dissertation, on the institutionalization and diffusion of urban sustainability, was the runner-up for the 2015 EDAMBA Best Dissertation award.
