Camille Pradies, Ph.D, is Associate Professor of Management at EDHEC Business School. She earned her Ph.D. in organizational behavior at Boston College. Using paradox theory, identity theories and/or institutional theory, Camille is interested in how individuals, groups and members of professions deal cognitively and emotionally with macro-level contradictions stemming from their organization (e.g. hybrid identity organizations, change initiatives) and/or their environment (e.g., new or competing institutional demands). Her research topics include hybrid identity organizations (e.g. veterinary clinics, family firms), professions and professional identities, ambivalence in groups. Her research topics include paradoxes, ambivalence, identity and questions pertaining to the future of professions.
