I am a professor of ethics at the École des sciences de la Gestion of the Université du Québec à Montréal. My current research and teaching are in the broad areas of business ethics, ethics & economics, and political philosophy. I am interested in our ethical obligations in adversarial institutions, such as the market; on the demands of justice for the ownership and the proper governance of the firm; and on questions of socio-economic inequality. My other main area of research deals with new ethical issues associated with the rise of artificial intelligence and the increased usage of algorithms in society.
