Publications

Peer-reviewed academic journals

My research aims to build bridges and cross-fertilisation between the fields of accounting, environmental management and conservation sciences. This interdisciplinary positioning leads me to publish in journals read by these different research communities.

Research reports

Some of the research reports cited below were produced as part of field courses conducted in France and internationally (see notably the module Evaluation of an International Environmental Project of the Advanced Master FNS-MI). Each project involved the development of research partnerships, the definition of a study topic, the coordination of a team of about fifteen students, and the scientific co-supervision of field surveys and analysis work. Each project resulted in a strategic environmental management analysis, presented during restitution events to the partners and then the writing of reports by the students.

Teaching cases and training materials

The teaching case method is particularly used in management sciences (most often on business strategy cases). Inspired by these approaches, we have co-written two cases that focus on collective and strategic management of ecosystems and ecosystem-centric accounting issues. I use these two cases regularly in my teaching.
