Emmanuelle studied Political Science and International Relations at Maastricht and Leiden University. She specialised in International Affairs, more specifically in the national and supra-national policy implications of the ecological transition at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, in Bologna.
She has always had an interest in EU Public Affairs. Her passions range from external affairs and human rights promotion to sustainability. This led her to work for FAO and Johns Hopkins University on the sustainability of agricultural policies in Europe and Eurasia. She then was introduced to private sector consultancy while working on the digital strategic communication of sustainability efforts with Lundquist, in Milan.
She was born and raised in Brussels but has spent the past six years in the Netherlands, Canada and Italy. Her mother tongues are Dutch and French. She is fluent in English and Italian, and has an intermediate knowledge of German.
