Didier Marquis


As a first-year Humanities PhD student, Didier delves into cross-section action research on food studies, consumer behaviour, design, and new media to identify effective strategies and tools enabling instinctual realignments with food habits in cities. He wishes to harness the leverage offered by emerging technologies, both as pedagogical tools and instruments for behavioural change. He believes that reconnecting with our food system is the first step to recognize its current unsustainability as a de-territorialised structure. Didier addresses the rise of hunger and poverty in cities by working on the development of innovative urban food networks that include marginalized actors and tackle issues of food security, self-sufficiency, ecological sustainability, and human health conditions.
