Hi! My name is Philippe and I am a fifth-year Ph.D. Candidate in Technology & Operations Management at INSEAD. In my research, I aim to understand how new business models, enabled by emerging technological developments, can help answer pressing societal questions while allowing organizations to remain competitive. I examine the impact of technological developments and surfacing societal issues at all layers of the business model, from the individual organization to entire supply chains. You can find out more about my research projects here, or you can watch my presentations from the recent INFORMS Annual Meeting about:
One of the technologies that I've studied in-depth during my research is blockchain. If you want to know more about how blockchain technology could affect supply chains, you can watch a tech talk hosted by digital@INSEAD. Together with my advisor Sameer Hasija, my Ph.D. colleague Dmitry Sumkin, and Aly Madhavji from the Blockchain Founders Fund, we analyze different perspectives and distinguish the hype from reality.

Prior to joining the Ph.D. Program at INSEAD, I earned my B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany, as well as my M.Sc., also in Industrial Engineering, from KIT and Linköping University, Sweden (dual degree). While in Karlsruhe, I consulted companies in the region as a member and managing director of student consultancy delta Karlsruhe GmbH.
