From its early stage, my research has always aimed to explain the linkages between international trade and the environment, using a transdisciplinary approach. I hence first completed a double bachelor in natural sciences and economics at the universities Paris 6 and Paris 2, where I worked on the impact of Brazil’s growth and export cycles on its biodiversity. I later on obtained my master in environmental sciences from the University of Tokyo, and wrote my thesis about the resilience of environmentally friendly farmers towards trade liberalization in Japan. During an internship at METIS 7619, I then analyzed the phosphorus content of France’s fertilizers imports. In my PhD at the university of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna, I analyzed the pressure on ecosystems and biodiversity embodied in international trade of agricultural and forestry products, using the HANPP approach. In my post doctoral work, I am currently working as a chapter scientist for the Austrian Panel for Climate Change assessment report, in the chapter for land use, ecosystems, health and climate change.
