I am a Belgian postdoctoral researcher (Marie Curie Postdoc), and my work aims to contribute to a better understanding of how workers' identity evolves in contact with organizational experiences in a changing world of work, with a focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and human-technologies interactions. I further analyze how these changes enable or constrain professional roles.
I use qualitative methods, and an interdisciplinary lens where I build on sociology, continental philosophy and communication to approach organizational and managerial phenomena.
I am a fellow of the Howard Brain Sciences Foundation (the USA, which was initially a spin-off of the Mind Machine Project MIT); a research associate of the International Research Centre on Globalisation and Work (CRIMT, Canada); a member of the Cluster for the Study of Organizations and Markets (COSM, University of Melbourne, Australia); a member of the Psychology of AI segment (ECDA, Erasmus, the Netherlands). I was a visiting scholar at Monash University (Emerging Technologies Research Lab., invited by the director and leading ethnographer Prof. Sarah Pink), a visiting scholar at the University of Melbourne (invited by Prof. Graham Sewell), a visiting researcher at the CRIMT Université de Montréal (invited by the director, Prof. Gregor Murray). I am the Head and Founder of the REIYS (voluntary) initiative (Rejoice in Yourself and Success).
