Biography

I am an Associate Professor (with tenure) belonging to the ‘Sustainability,’ ‘Managerial Accounting and Control,’ and ‘General Management’ groups at the Ivey Business School – a cross-disciplinary appointment that reflects my research and teaching. I ambition to push the boundaries of knowledge and practice by investigating how fashioning new devices, and collective actions can help transform financial markets towards sustainability. Over the years, I have studied the emergence of responsible investing, impact assessment, integrated reporting, and alternative currencies. My work in this area has won me several academic, teaching, and professional prizes.
I founded and have led the Sustainable Finance Lab at the Centre for Building Sustainable Value. I am currently working on an extensive research program on conservation finance, aiming to channel capital toward protecting ecosystems, notably through conservation impact bonds. As an ethnographer, I enjoy doing field research and sharing my experience with students and practitioners. I published my work at the Oxford University Press, Chains of Finance: How Investment Management is Shaped, and in major academic journals across various disciplines.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, I initiated and led an interdisciplinary, multimedia, and multilingual project, Breaking Boundaries, to offer a lasting record of collective and individual experiences during the lockdown and its aftermath. This book contributes to establishing the accounting discipline’s role in recording critical moments in our global history.
