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 Management and Service Studies, Campus Helsingborg, Lund University.
My fields of research and teaching are organization theory, and I have been working for a long time with infrastructure issues, for example public libraries, railroad planning, wind power siting, risk in public transportation. For the last ten years or so I have focused on the production and management of waste. In particular, I have been heading the research projects From waste management to waste prevention (FORMAS) and Organizing Critical Infrastructure Services – The case of waste management (VINNOVA). I have been an associated editor for Waste Management, and I sit on the editorial board of Detritus. I also sit on the editorial board of the Scandinavian Journal of Management. In the recent years I have published about waste in journals with management (e.g., Accounting Organization and Society, International Journal of Quality and Service Sciences, Marketing Theory, Organization), social-anthropology (Journal of Material Culture), geography (Environment and Planning), environment studies (Journal of Cleaner Production), and engineering (Waste Management, Waste Management & Research).
I proceed most often, but not exclusively, through the analysis of texts and discourses, with special preference for inscription, narrative and argumentation analysis.
