I was born and raised in Luxembourg before pursuing my university education in Switzerland and the United States. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and my Master’s Degree in Banking and Finance from the University of Lausanne.
Since earning my Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of Rochester in New York State, I have been doing research and teaching at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. I am currently the RBC Professor in Responsible Organizations. My research focuses on organizations and their governance, and I explore how governance is related to gender inequalities.
I am the lead researcher on the SSHRC-funded research program “Disruptive Dames? The process of disruption underlying women’s transition into organizational leadership,” which is funded until 2027. It explores the process underlying the disruption of gender inequalities in the leadership of for-profit organizations in Canada.
In addition to my research work, I write for and engage with the media; I have published in The Conversation and The London School of Economics Business Review. In 2022, I received the President’s Media Outreach Award of Concordia University for my publications in The Conversation.
I teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels; my teaching focuses on organizational disclosures and governance.
