Anouch Missirian is a fourth-year student in the PhD program in Sustainable Development. She studied Biology and Ecology at the Ecole normale supérieure in Paris, France, and Environmental Economics at AgroParisTech.

Anouch is primarily interested in how ecosystems and human societies (via their economic component) influence each other. Her current focus is on changes in ecosystem processes that result from changes in the use of agricultural land (e.g. intensification or expansion of pasture, cropland, developed areas, or forest), and the feedback effects of those changes on the economy. Other interests include: pesticides, (environmental) distorsions, human migrations.
