I am an assistant professor at ICN Business School, France. My research interests focus on organisational and institutional dynamics of professional fields. My PhD tackled the transformation of scientific laboratories under the influence of nanoscience and nanotechnology policies. I am pursuing the study of the transformation of the scientific activity such as the emergence of the role of principal investigator. I also expand these theoretical questionings to the medical profession and connected health, as well as the French gastronomy. These fieldworks have in common to be structured by knowledge and practices which are challenged by new technologies, practices and external actors. I mobilise different streams of literature which are at the crossroad of institutional theory, boundary theory and sociology of science. Empirically, my research is based on qualitative methods and relies on document analysis and interviews.
