PhD in HRM
Previous studies: Master in international business (Alicante University, Spain) and Master in cultures and organisational leadership (Anglia Ruskin University, UK)
Spoken languages: French, English, Spanish
I worked for ten years in the Cosmetic Industry developing projects and products as well as managing business and people internationally. During that time I lived 2 years in Spain, 5 months in Germany and almost 7 years in the UK. My experience, studies and inspiring encounters led me to start a PhD in 2015 on CSR experts experience of, and reactions to, daily paradoxes in their practice and interactions. I have participated in several international conferences around the thematic of Eco-Leadership and Responsible Management Education (Academy of Management, EGOS, PRME conference…).
PhD in leadership management
Previous studies: Master in social and human sciences (University of Nantes, France)
Spoken language: French, English
After a master degree in social and human sciences I worked for 7 years as a sale manager being in charge of training and integration of one hundred people. Built on the experience, my main research interest lies in the role of wellbeing in the workplace. My first research paper is dealing with emotional intelligence as a moderator in the abusive supervision process for both the supervisor and the subordinates. Psychosocial and Neuroscience approaches can help to improve the understanding of leadership, and in particular in managers’ training programs.

My primary research interests are corporate divestitures, especially their implications during the post-deal period. I presented my work at the EURAM, AIMS, SMS and BAM conferences. Also, I was a member of the organization committee for the CIFEPME 2018 conference. Currently, I am representative of the Ph.D. students at the Doctoral Programme Board. Also, I am teaching growth strategies and business strategy.
PhD in marketing
Previous studies: Master in marketing, consumption and communication (IULM, Italy)

I started my studies in 2011 at the University of Palermo (Italy) in communication science with a focus in human communication applied to mass media, institutions and politics. I graduated in 2014 with a thesis on political communication and satire through social networks. In 2016 I obtained an Erasmus+ grant, spending six months in Brussels doing an internship in Unioncamere Europa, an institution which acts as an intermediary between the Italian Chambers of Commerce and the European Institutions. In 2017 I obtained my master degree with a thesis on the social role of consumption and consumers' decisional processes affected by egoistic and altruistic motivations. I participated in a European Voluntary Service project in Portugal before moving to Toulouse at the end of 2017 to start my PhD journey. My research focuses on human-technology interaction and communication, with an interest in trust and ethics. I presented my first research paper to the European Marketing Academy.
PhD in strategy
Previous studies: Master aeronautical engineering - maintenance of aircrafts & engines (Ufa State Aviation Technical University, Russia)
Spoken languages: Creole, English, French, Russian, Hindi
Coming from a mixed academic and professional background with a master in aviation engineering and professional experience in sales, marketing and business development in petroleum industry for the aviation and marine sectors, innovation management under the influence of globalisation and convergence of industries has always been a curiosity. This was my initial motivation for starting a PhD thesis. In the contemporary business environment, firms are engaged in collaborative networks to deliver a full-fledged product or service to customers. Ecoystems are one setting where we can see this collective process for innovation with individual private benefits. My research focus has evolved from innovation strategies in dyadic coopetitive settings to innovation strategies in ecosystems. I study for example innovation ecosystems, platforms, multi-sided markets, Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0.
