Anne joined IEEP in 2015. She specialises in agricultural and rural development policies and their implications for the environment and climate change, with a particular focus on the Common Agricultural Policy. Her interest focuses on developing policies which deliver long lasting environmental and climate benefits.
Anne is involved in a range of policy evaluation and research projects primarily for the European Commission and other EU institutions but also NGOs, the industry and national governments. Between 2015-2018, she managed the Horizon 2020 PEGASUS research project which looked at ways to enhance the provision of public goods in the EU agriculture and forestry sectors. Over the years, Anne has developed extensive knowledge of agriculture, and rural development policies, policy development processes and methods to evaluate their impacts across the 28 EU Member States.
Prior to joining IEEP, Anne worked for over 3 years in Brussels as an agricultural policy consultant and completed a ‘Bluebook’ traineeship at the European Commission (DG AGRI) in 2011. She also previously worked in the Netherlands in European agricultural supply chain operations. Anne holds an MSc in agriculture, food and environment and a Master in European business and management. She is fluent in French, English and Italian.
