Dominique Roux-Bauhain is a graduate of ESCP-EAP (Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris) and Doctor of Management Sciences from the University of Paris I-Panthéon-Sorbonne. As a Professor of Marketing at University Reims Champagne-Ardenne (URCA), she is co-founder of ALCOR, an interdisciplinary research network dedicated to consumption and co-editor in chief for Carnets de la Consommation.

She participated in the CORELAB poject (ADEME) after being involved in the consci-gaspi and RECHANGE project (ADEME), as well as PICO project (the PIoneers in COllaborative consumption). She also served as the coordinator of two funded research projects:

Her main research activity deals with alternative modes of provisioning and consuming. She developed research on second-hand consumption and the motivations for purchasing used items as well as the links between the self and symbolic relationships to objects. The values underlying second-hand consumption  and various critical postures toward consumer society led to subsequent research on consumer resistance and avoidance of conventional distribution channels. She is also interested in the approach of space and place where alternative consumption activities occur, for example  the way sidewalks are used by disposers and gleaners on bulky item collection days, or the tattooed body as a site for personal expression.
