My research topics concern :

  • Competitive dynamics and health territories
  • Cooperation strategies of health establishments
  •  Hospital complex management

I participate since 2012 in the project "Exploration of complexes : terra nova of public health establishment management" This project concerns the analysis of "Mother – child" complexes within public hospitals, in order to better understand the roles of the different actors composing them, the modes of function, contracts and projects that take place within them and any pooling instruments.

In 2014, following an initial work on "Cooperation strategies by non-profit health establishments", we started with colleagues from the epidemiology/biostatistics department, a research programme funded by the FEHAP on the analysis of the territorial cover of non profit private establishments via the observation of MCO/SSR sectors.
