I am an organizational researcher and a Ph.D. student at Emlyon Business School, where I teach Transformations and Microeconomics in the PGE program. In my research, I use machine learning techniques, such as word embeddings and structural/dynamic topic modeling, to identify patterns in large corpora. I am a part of the Strategy & Organization (STORM) and Work, Technology, and Organization (WTO) research centers at Emlyon. Previously, I worked as a research analyst at École normale supérieure (ENS) and Edelman Intelligence in Paris. I studied economics at Allameh Tabataba’i University (BA) and the University of Amsterdam (MSc), as well as innovation and management at SKEMA Business School (MSc).
