Perrine Laroche is a junior researcher, working as a PhD candidate at the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) of the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Her research project is supported by the ITN COUPLED, dealing with Operationalising Telecouplings for Solving Sustainability Challenges for Land Use. She holds a BSc in Geography and Spatial Planning from the University Jean Moulin (Lyon, France), and a MSc in Applied Economics to Natural Resources management from, jointly, the University of Western Brittany (Brest, France) and Agrocampus Ouest (Rennes, France).

She is deeply interested in further understanding the relations that humans draw and maintain with their environment. Her PhD research aims to identify the impacts of lifestyle changes on socio-ecological systems, through the flow of demands for ecosystem services, and to study related telecouplings.
