Mélanie Douziech

Mélanie Douziech is currently working as a Researcher - Project Manager at Agroscope, the Swiss competence center for Agriculture. She is developing and applying methods to assess the sustainability of innovative technologies used in agriculture. She is also quantifying the environmental impacts associated with different food types. She is also an Associate Researcher at the Centre O.I.E (Observation, Impacts, Energy) of MINES ParisTech, in Sophia Antipolis (France). She contributes to studies focusing on the life cycle assessment of renewable energy technologies. She holds a PhD in Environmental Science from the Radboud University in the Netherlands (2019). During her PhD she worked on improving the reliability of the chemical footprint of consumer products. A part of her PhD, she also worked at the Safety and Environmental Assurance Center of Unilever in Colworth, United kingdom and at Ostfoldforskning in Fredrikstad, Norway.
