Bio

As a sociologist and assistant professor at emlyon business school, attached to the OCE (Organisations: Critical and Ethnographic Perspectives) research center, I study the ways in which organisations deal with and attempt to manage threats, disasters and crises, as well as the social, political and environmental effects of these strategies. My doctoral research focused on the nuclear industry and its adverse environmental and health effects. My current projects focus on the interface between civilian and military uses of nuclear technologies and the links between nuclear energy and the climate crisis. I am a research associate at the Centre for the Sociology of Organizations (Sciences Po) and at the Nuclear Knowledges program based at the International Research Centre and at several international partner universities.
