Brief Biography: 

Anne is currently senior project manager at BIO Intelligence Service. She has a PhD in Ecology and works as an applied ecologist and environmental policy analyst.

At BIO, she is responsible for studies aiming to mainstream biodiversity into policy. Most of her work focuses on linking biodiversity with natural resource use and environmental impacts. One of her main interests is to facilitate the science-policy interface, and she has led several EU projects on soil biodiversity, forest biotic disturbances, or green infrastructures. She was also involved on projects involving the development of biodiversity indicators, estimating soil water retention capacities, or the economic value of employment, tourism and recreation in Natura 2000. She also looks at the larger scale impacts of production and consumption on land use. In particular she has expertise on how EU policies affect soil conservation and she is currently assessing how resource efficiency policies for land use could help climate mitigation. She also collaborates on research looking at the impacts of urbanisation on people and biodiversity.
