Lucile Dehouck is a PhD candidate working at the intersection of environment, development, and migration economics. In her thesis project entitled “Climate-induced forced migration”, she aims to contribute to a better understanding of the relationship between migration and climate. To this end, Lucile uses econometric techniques and data science tools to provide new empirical evidence in those fields. She likes using satellite data and remote sensing products to help answer policy questions. As an applied development economist, she is also aiming to directly contribute to the knowledge of the impact of climate change in the Global South.
Before coming to Columbia, Lucile obtained a master’s degree in economics from the Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay and Polytechnique.
