Claire Palandri


Claire Palandri is a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Harris School of Public Policy. She received her Ph.D. from Columbia University’s program in Sustainable Development, which cultivates an interdisciplinary approach to address the challenges of socio-ecological systems.

Her research focuses on bringing together the insights and methodological strengths of multiple disciplines to address such questions, and notably to study the animal farming system. She is deeply interested in the relation between humans and domesticated animals, and its position in the socio-ecological transition. Her research relates to 2 areas: (i) The diverse forms of animal farming, from artisanal to industrial, and the tradeoffs they entail; (ii) Bridging differences between the statistical methods of disciplines whose collaboration is needed for such interdisciplinary questions.

Prior to the University of Chicago and Columbia University, she earned her M.Sc. in Environmental Economics and B.Sc. in Environmental Science from AgroParisTech (France).
