Professor of organisational theory & Director of the Centre for Social Ontology, Digital Chair., Grenoble École de Management (GEM)
I am interested in social theory and critical management studies. I study social phenomena of significance for human flourishing. My analysis usually combines ethnographic exploration, ontological questioning and ethical discussion. Recent projects include:
- empirical studies on normativity, relationality and violence.
- socio-philosophical reflections on Late Modernity and intensified social change.
- socio-philosophical reflections on post-human society, incl. artificial intelligence.
Journal publications include research articles in: Academy of Management Learning and Education; British Journal of Sociology; Business Ethics Quarterly; Cambridge Journal of Economics; Human Relations; Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour; Organization; Organization Studies.
