ABOUT

I am a post-doctoral research fellow in Information Systems & Analytics at the National University of Singapore. I received my Ph.D. in Management of Information Systems from ESSEC Business School, France, and a Doctorat en Sciences de Gestion from EM2PSI Doctoral School. During my Ph.D., I spent three years in Singapore conducting research on the emergence of a cashless society.

I obtained an M.Sc. Business Administration Research from ESSEC Business School, France, and a double degree M.Sc. Management (Grande Ecole) from ESSEC Business School and from the University of Mannheim, Germany. I also have a B.A. in Media Studies and Management from the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany.

Having lived and worked in the U.K., France, and Singapore for more than 9 years has brought me closer to new cultures, ideas, values, and beliefs. I am a curious and enthusiastic traveler, a passionate runner and swimmer, and enjoy cooking and good books.

RESEARCH

I am passionate about the interplay between digital technologies, users, organizations, and society. My motivation derives from (i) my curiosity to understand how digital technologies shape work and lives and (ii) my values to improve these environments with the help of digital technologies. Specifically, my research interests lie in (i) the unintended and/or undesirable consequences of digital technologies and (ii) the role of digital technologies for new ways of organizing and working.

I am trained as both a quantitative and qualitative researcher. Given the exploratory nature of the research questions I pursue, I am most passionate about qualitative research and have used multi-level embedded and longitudinal case study designs as well as multiple-case theory-building approaches. I have also been trained at the University of Michigan Mixed Methods program led by Dr. John Creswell.

Given the specific and contextualized environments of my research phenomena, I tend to take interpretivist approaches. However, when faced with the unintended consequences of digital technologies, interpretivism can be insufficient to critique and trigger change. Thus, I also embrace the critical paradigm. I believe the necessity and beauty of critical research lie in the potential to realize our social and ethical responsibility as researchers to address important social issues, such as power and social control.

I seek to conduct research that demonstrates high rigor and relevance. My active involvement in the academic community across conferences and workshops has helped me to build a research network that I seek to deepen and expand continuously. Please get in touch, if you are interested in exchanging about research ideas or establishing a research collaboration.

Technologies have substantially changed the way businesses work. Parts of business operations are digitally transformed, and new digital-only business models conquer the market. The course seeks to explain (1) how businesses in different industries create and capture value to generate a sustainable competitive advantage using novel technologies and (2) how technology may be used to tackle some of the grand challenges of our times. The course sheds light on opportunities and the risks digital technologies bear for business using well-established and new concepts from the strategy literature.
