Born in 1974 in France, Juliette Rouchier studied Mathematics and English literature at the University of Orleans. She then completed a DEA and a phD in Environmental Sciences. She specialised in the application of multi-agent simulations for environmental studies (Title of her thesis "Trust in exchange"). She now works at the centre for policy modelling (CPM) at the Manchester Metropolitan University and is involved in the FIRMA project, which builds a gap between multi-agent models and participatory approaches in water management.
