Martin LEURENT - Ingénieur-Economiste

Favourite Quote: "It is time to start living the life you've imagined" Henry James.

I am an Economist graduated from the Ecole Normale Supérieur (ENS) de Cachan – France in 2015 with a Bachelor’s degree in Theoretical and Empirical Economics. In 2014-2015 I have finished my master 2 at the University of Paris 9 Dauphine in Management of Technology and Innovation (MTI).
After graduation I worked as a research assistant at VTT, the largest technical research center in Finland.Throughout in-depth interviews with experts from industries and policitcal organizations, I conducted a science and technology study on the drivers for and obstacles to the development of low temperature nuclear heat recovery. 
I did my PhD thesis within the French Nuclear Energy Commission (CEA) and Centrale Supelec. The subject of the PhD is "Socio-economics of nuclear cogeneration: A system approcach" supervised by Prof. Pacal Da Costa. Since October 2018, I am working in ENGIE as an engineer-economist, 
providing mid- to long-term view on market analyses, future scenarios, risk assessment and techno-economic studies based on both in-house developed models and commercial softwares. I also support Corporate lobbying on energy policy and regulation issues, in particular regarding France, and represent the Group at consultation meetings on energy policies.
