I am an Assistant Professor of Marketing at emlyon business school, and a member of the Lifestyle Research Center. Before joining emlyon business school, I have worked at Concordia University (Canada) as a postdoctoral researcher. I received a Ph.D. in Marketing from La Sorbonne University and ESCP Europe. I also hold a Master’s degree in Sociology from La Sorbonne University and École Normale Supérieure.
I research market dynamics, taste, and alternative agriculture through ethnographic methods. I am also interested in epistemology and the visual translation of my research through artistic media.
I have published in international journals and books, and communicated in major conferences. I review papers for The Journal of Consumer Research, Consumption, Markets & Culture, Marketing Letters, and Recherche et Applications Marketing. In 2018, I have organized the first edition of the Taste Research Day as part of my activities within the Lifestyle Research Center. Starting November 2018, I will co-edit a Special Issue on Taste for Consumption, Markets & Culture.
I am currently in the Board of Directors of the Consumer Culture Theory Consortium.
