Eugenie is a Ph.D. candidate in Sustainable Development at the School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University. Her primary field of research is in Environmental Economics. Her interests lie primarily in understanding how institutions and policies can influence science, innovation and technological change in a way that makes the economic machine sustainable for the environment and the human societies that live upon it. In one project, she uses natural language processing methods on patents and scientific articles to study the role of innovation during the crisis of ozone depletion that took place in the 1980s and 1990s.

Eugenie received a Graduate Diploma in Economics from the University of London and the London School of Economics, broadly equivalent to an undergraduate concentration in Economics. She also holds a Diplôme d’Ingénieur from Chimie-ParisTech, equivalent to a M.Sc. in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Before joining the PhD program, she worked for Procter & Gamble in Brussels, and spent one year on a solo around-the-world trip volunteering for various NGOs.
