Personal profile

Personal information

After graduating from ESCP Europe and working as a consultant for three years between Paris and London, Lucie obtained a PhD from Mines ParisTech. Her dissertation explores the specific tensions generated by consultants' work-life balance aspirations. She analyses the strategies implemented by consultants to improve their sense of work-life balance and how these challenge both managerial discourses and traditional ways of organizing consulting work.  

Lucie's current research focuses on the contemporary evolutions of professional firms. She takes a multilevel approach to study how individual demands for work-life balance and interesting work, along with external pressures from clients, have encouraged the development of new forms of organizing professional work, with a specific interest in the rise of networks of freelancers among professionals.
