Prior to joining Laval University, she worked for ten years at the Institut Paul Bocuse Research Center in France, where she created and was responsible of a research group in behavioral economics of food.
Her research, within the field of behavioral economics, is mainly based on experimental approaches and explores the transition towards food system sustainability at the level of individual decision-making.
