Damien Mayaux is a PhD student at Paris School of Economics and the École des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) for the 2022-2023 academic year.

His research focuses on point-of-sale regulations for food products, paying specific attention to environmental issues and the use of digital devices. He addresses these topics at the intersection of industrial organization and behavioural economics using data from consumer panels, online experiments and websites. In order to better design behavioural interventions towards sustainable consumption , his master thesis analyzed which demand shocks could foster organic egg consumption in French generalist food retailers and concluded that communicating on prices and production costs can be an effective strategy.
