Laura Brimont is a Research Fellow at IDDRI, in the Digital Technology and Ecology initiative. Her work focuses on crowdfunding and mobility, especially collaborative mobility (carsharing, carpooling, development of autonomous vehicles). She also conducts research on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted in 2015 by the United Nations, analysing the specific ways in which states and companies take ownership of these goals.
Before joining IDDRI, Laura worked for five years on deforestation issues in tropical countries, especially in Cameroon and Madagascar. Her thesis research (AgroParisTech/CIRAD) dealt with the cost of the mechanism for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) in Madagascar. She is a graduate of Sciences Po Paris in international relations.
Alongside her research activities at IDDRI, Laura is a part-time lecturer on the international governance of sustainable development (IEP Grenoble, University Paris 1, University Versailles Saint-Quentin).
