Jouffray is a joint PhD candidate between Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University, and the Global Economic Dynamics and Biosphere programme (GEDB) at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

As a PhD-candidate in Sustainability Science, his primary interest lies in exploring the intertwined relationship between humans and marine ecosystems in the Anthropocene, with the ambition to provide empirical novel approaches and analytical methods for understanding social-ecological system dynamics around the world.

His research encompasses multiple scales and systems, ranging from the Hawaiian archipelago and indicators for effective coral management, to the seafood industry at a global scale and the role of transnational corporations and the financial sector.

Jouffray has a background in natural science with an undergraduate degree in Biology of Organisms, Populations and Ecosystems from University Paul-Sabatier (France), and a MSc in Ecology from Stockholm University. After defending his MSc thesis in 2013, he joined the Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere program at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences as a research analyst for one year, before starting a PhD in Sustainability Sciences.

At Stockholm Resilience Centre, Jouffray is affiliated to the theme Governance of coastal and marine systems and the stream Patterns of the Anthropocene, working primarily with Magnus Nyström, Albert Norström, Henrik Österblom and Beatrice Crona. Other collaborators include researchers from the Center for Ocean Solutions - Stanford University, Hawaii University, NOAA, Bangor University, Lancaster University, Leibniz Center for Tropical Marine Ecology and University of St Andrews.

The Hawaiian case study is run in collaboration with the NCEAS group Ocean Tipping Points that seeks to identify critical thresholds and indicators for effective coral reef management in the Hawaiian Islands.

Jouffray is also a member of the Resilience Alliance Young Scholars (RAYS) network.
