About me

I am a fourth year PhD student in management at Paris Dauphine University and at the University of Luxembourg, currently spending the second half of my doctoral program at New York University. My dissertation focuses on the levels of abstraction at which employees mentally represent their work roles. I obtained a B.A. in Economics and English from the University of Paris West (2005), an M.Sc. in International Business from Sciences Po Paris (2007) and an M.Sc. in Management from ESSEC Business School (2009).

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the field of organizational behavior, with an emphasis on understanding how employees mentally represent their work roles. Drawing upon construal level theory, a social-cognitive theory focused on how people construe targets, I suggest that certain behaviors and organizational factors make employees think about their work more concretely or more abstractly. Specifically, I hypothesize that role integration behaviors shift people from thinking concretely to thinking more abstractly about their work, with some benefits for enhanced exploratory learning behaviors. I explore this phenomenon though lab experiments, archival studies and longitudinal field studies.
