Imaginaries of future food systems in France

Trained in social innovation by design and urban design, I am a service and UX design. I completed a PhD in Information and Communication Sciences with a specialisation in Design and worked for the research and development department of the electricity company EDF. I am now a teacher and researcher in the design school based in Troyes, France. My area of research transitions by design, and more specifically my current topic of research is the futures of food systems. Imaginaries, human experiences, sustainable development and transitions theories as guidelines for my research.
