Biography

I spent 6 years as a Production Manager, firstly at Schaeffler, an automotive supplier (2008 - 2011) and then at an Amazon logistics centre (2011 - 2014). In 2015, I began my career in teaching and research as a contractual PhD student and then as a Temporary Teaching & Research Fellow. My main teaching areas have been Project Management, Production and Quality Management as well as the supervision of collective and individual projects.

My research work focusses on the roles and behaviours of key players in times of change: study of the processes of adopting change; study of the influence of managers on their employees (leadership, sensemaking, sensegiving); assessing employee attitudes towards change (well-being at work, commitment and attitude towards change).

In my work, I generally use a mixed methodology.

I obtained my PhD in Management Science in 2019 and I am very pleased to join Excelia Business School as Assistant Professor in Project Management. As I am still in the early stages of my teaching and research career, I am certain that my work will be further enriched by future collaborations with all other Excelia teams.
