Personal profile

Personal information

Floris Leijten is an industrial PhD student based at Unilever with a dual appointment within the Environmental Geography Group at the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM). His research is part of the COUPLED project (coupled-itn.eu) and focuses on the effectiveness of (corporate) zero-deforestation commitments.

In addition, he has a strong interest in the use of computable general equilibrium models to assess the direction and magnitude of market-mediated spillover effects.
