I started my career as an investor in the energy sector in New York. Working with leaders in the oil and gas industry, it became obvious that a transition to a zero carbon economy would not happen spontaneously. That lead me to a master in economics at PSE to study environmental policy and understand the economic drivers of the ecological transition. However, I realized that even the best policies won't work unless they are aligned with our individual psychology.
I am now a PhD student in cognitive sciences at the ENS Paris, researching how evolution shaped our brain. I am particularly interested in studying how individuals adapt to the amount of resources available in their environment, and how our social cognition influences pro-environmental behavior. By understanding this, I hope to define new pathways to create a thriving society.
