Personal profile


I was born in France, but I have been living in Sweden since 1985. I am a professor of Business Administration at the Department of Service Studies, Helsingborg Campus, Lund University.

My fields of research and teaching are sustainability and organization theory, with a focus on infrastructure issues, in particular waste management, and the circular economy.

I have been heading research projects on Waste Management (e.g., From waste management to waste prevention (FORMAS); Organizing Critical Infrastructure Services-The case of waste management (VINNOVA)).

Currently, I am on the following research projects:

  • Relationships within circular business models, with Umeå School of Business, Economics and Statistics (USBE) and Mälardalens University (Formas),
  • ReX: Organizing for Activities of Re-: action-nets that give more than once life to consumer products and their components (FORMAS)
  • Hur Helsingborg Stad för in material och biomassa i den cirkulära ekonomin (City of Helsingborg)
  • Circular Mindset for Change (Rijkswaterstaat - Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, Netherlands)

I have also done research about business ethics, risk, and diversity management.

I do qualitative research and proceed most often, but not exclusively, through the analysis of texts and discourses, with a preference for inscriptions, narratives, and argumentation analysis.

I am part-time retired.
