Alexandre graduated in International Business from Grenoble Graduate Business School in 2011, where he studied international strategy, law, project and programme management, finance, accounting and other topics related to business management.
Since then, he has been working in Consulting in various European countries, in Digital Transformation for the private and public sector. His latest experience was in PwC’s Consulting Practice, where he was working for major public institutions and private clients for the past 6 years, as Senior Manager in the Digital Identity team.
His main contributions were in delivering digital identity services enabling public and private sector transformation, with a focus on the topics of citizen identity, digital services, border management and migration. His specific focus was on design, strategy, operations, governance, partnership, programme and project management aspects, and he acquired as solid understanding of the underlying legal and technical aspects of the delivery of national / international digital identity programs.
His research interests lie primarily in the intersection between technology and major societal changes, and in particular with regards to the relationship between citizens, public and private sector. As such, Digital Identity and Digital Ledger Technologies are currently the core of his interests, from different angles ranging from technology, governance, communication and trust. His goal is to produce actionable research, targeted to decision makers and practitioners in the field, supporting the design of programmes leveraging these technologies for societal impact.
His research will involve a mix of theoretical and practical contributions, for which he intends to use qualitative and quantitative methods. His first research contributions will be around the topic of user-centricity in a public sector environment, for digital identity applications, and the need for balance between control and privacy. He is also observing the evolution towards decentralised governance in the public sector, through the prism of the European EBSI infrastructure.
