Marie Fricaudet is working on the post-doctorate on the decarbonization of shipping, which is the result of the collaboration between IDDRI and the University College London. Her main domains of expertise include socio-technical transitions, and in particular the role of financiers in hampering/enabling them; and the decarbonisation of capital- and carbon-intensive sectors, in particular the transport of freight.
She holds a dual bachelor degree between Sciences Po Paris and Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne University (applied mathematics and computer science) and a dual master degree in Urban Policy between Sciences Po Paris and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LES). After working for a few years as a consultant in transport planning and the decarbonisation of shipping for Atkins SNC-Lavalin and UCL/UMAS, she has studied for a PhD on the topic of stranded assets in the shipping industry.
