Perrine works as an analyst in the Agrifood and Biodiversity division to help companies understand their supply chains and inherent risks. She encourages bold changes in how food is produced, distributed, and consumed.
Perrine draws from an extensive skillset acquired through a multidisciplinary academic background to provide thoughtful and rigorous analyses. In France, she studied geography and economics applied to the management of agriculture, fisheries, and the environment. In 2018, she moved to Amsterdam to carry out her doctoral research project on sustainable lifestyles in a globalized world. She is particularly adept at combining data in innovative ways to understand how globalization processes lead to sustainability problems, and then identify solutions to address them.
Perrine’s interests are many, but the theme of food is a constant in her activities. Among other things, she has organized a series of events on the theme “Feeding the planet, energy for life,” spent a summer WWOOF-ing (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms), and devoted the first chapter of her doctoral thesis to dietary change. Trying to do better for nature gives meaning to Perrine’s life, as it entails taking care of oneself and others beyond material comfort. Changing mindsets is what interests her most when it comes to sustainability. She believes that values and meanings are essential levers for unlocking systemic changes whose full potential remains untapped.
