Following a “technical” degree in forestry and a PhD focused on modelling the effects of EU agricultural policies, since 2013 I have held the position of research engineer applied to the bio-economic modelling of the forestry sector at the Bureau of Theoretical and Applied Economics (BETA) in Nancy.
I am concerned with modelling the effects of climate change on forest dynamics, but then also cascading onto forest managers and, finally, onto the markets for wood products, trying to integrate the adaptation possibilities of both individual managers and the society as a whole ( through public policies).
On the other hand, I am interested in an evaluation of the role of the forestry sector, not only as an object affected by climate change, but also as a subject operating for its potential mitigation, highlighting the existing trade-offs between adaptation needs and mitigation potential.
At the same time, from a more technical side, I am interested in the new opportunities related to machine learning techniques and incomputer programming using the Julia language.
Understanding the mechanisms of deforestation is necessary in order to slow or arrest its progress. To accomplish this requires rigorously estimating the demand for deforestation. We contribute to this endeavor by estimating the effect of crop prices on the demand for conversion of land from forest to agriculture in the tropics during the 21st...
