Biography

I am a PhD candidate (enrolled at UNIL) working under the supervision of Prof. Kévin Huguenin (UNIL). I started my PhD in early 2016. In parallel, I work as a scientific collaborator/researcher for the Military Academy at ETH Zurich (Chair of Defense Economics) in collaboration with PD Dr. Marcus Matthias Keupp (ETH Zurich, HSG).

Starting from a socio-technical perspective of information systems, I apply microeconomics to the field of information systems security. By mobilizing strategic management theories related to organizational capabilities, my goal is to provide relevant novelties in the field of information systems security in the context of Critical Infrastructures Protection (CIP). Security Economics and Economics of Information Security constitute my research communities.
