Growing up in San Francisco, and spending a lot of her upbringing in the Californian outdoors, Margaux quickly developed an interest in the different ecosystems within her surroundings – from desert, forest, alpine, riparian or coastal landscapes. She gained a particular interest in understanding the complex interactions between deeply rooted natural systems and more novel and dynamic human systems.
Coming from a French-American family and community, Margaux chose to pursue her bachelor’s in Montreal Canada, combining coursework in social and physical sciences in the environmental field, while gaining exposure to international research. Following this, Margaux directed her focus towards developing technical skills for environmental problem-solving as a Masters student at the Bren School of UC Santa Barbara.
Once equipped with local government experience and research expertise, Margaux joined Metabolic in 2019 as a sustainability consultant for the agrifood and biodiversity team. Margaux is passionate about addressing complex environmental issues by leveraging data science methods and tools to develop solutions that are reproducible, scalable, and adaptable to a rapidly changing world.
