Anette Mikes is Full Professor of Accounting, Control, and Risk Management at HEC Lausanne, University of Lausanne.

She received her PhD from the London School of Economics (LSE), where her dissertation on risk management in financial institutions was the first field-based research in this area of studies. Before joining the University of Lausanne, she was Assistant Professor at Harvard Business School.

Between 2007-2010, she directed a research program that investigated evolving directions in risk management in the banking sector, on both sides of the Atlantic, which led to a series of research papers on the role of the chief risk officer. Anette Mikes also studied risk management practices in various nonfinancial organizations.

Most recently, Anette Mikes has been exploring the relationships between risk management, innovation and dissonance. Driven by a passion to improve our ability to understand and manage pluralistic risk and disaster situations, she has studied emerging, pluralistic control practices in high-reliability organizations, and created an award-winning multimedia case on the Kursk submarine rescue failure.
