Gaëlle Leduc

Gaëlle Leduc


Gaëlle Leduc is employed as a Phd student and is part of the large EU project of LIFT ( (Low-Input Farming Terrirotries) which aims at identifying and understanding how socio-economic and policy drivers impact on the development of ecological approaches to farming and assess the performance and sustainability of such approaches. Gaëlle is specifically focusing on behavioral factors influencing farmers' adoption of ecological practices. She uses both quantitative and qualitative methods to study that topic. Her studies focalize both on Sweden and other EU countries. She has been a visiting student researcher at UC Berkely during her PhD. 

Gaëlle holds a Research Master in economics from the Paris School of Economics and a second master on Global Political Economy from Stockholm University. Prior to her PhD studies, Gaëlle was an intern at the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and the OFCE (Observatoire français des conjonctures économiques).
