And thank you for visiting my personal webpage. Here, you will learn about…
A French scholar passionate about developing and communicating knowledge, skills and tools.
Research, teaching, management accounting and control, data science and business analytics, all empowered by R.
A virtuous circle where knowledge creation and transmission among academics, students and practitioners lead to true expertise.
Former R&D controller in Ingenico, I received in 2012 a Ph.D. in management control from HEC Paris, France. I then worked for four years as assistant professor at the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, Switzerland. For the past three years, I have been assistant professor at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.
I specialize in management accounting and management control and have built over time strong skills in business analytics. My main research interests pertain to the relation between the qualities of performance metrics and their use for incentive contracts, performance evaluation and decision making.
In addition, have built several R packages to automatize or facilitate data manipulation, project documentation, or the production of papers and presentations. My extensive coding skills in R allowed me to support research projects in various areas besides management accounting and control, like strategy, financial accounting, or corporate governance.
In the past 13 years I have taught as lecturer, tutor, or facilitator at all levels in higher education, from under-graduate programs to executive education. I also have experience in the supervision of master theses and in the coordination of large introductory courses in management accounting (500+ students).
Finally, to continuously improve students’ learning experience and proficiency in management accounting and management control, I have developed several packages to facilitate the production of pedagogical materials like online textbooks, short exercises, tutorials, integrated cases, open and multiple-choice examinations.
