Biography: 

Originally trained as a nutritionist, with graduate degrees in finances (MBA), marketing (MPS), and behavioral decision making/consumer psychology (PhD), Laurette Dubé is Full Professor and holds the James McGill Chair of consumer and lifestyle psychology and marketing at the Desautels Faculty of Management of McGill University. She is also the founding chair and scientific director of the McGill Center for the Convergence of Health and Economics (MCCHE), a unique initiative to push the boundaries of disciplinary and complexity sciences to help individuals, communities, businesses, social enterprises, and governments to tackle, better than has been possible thus far, the most pressing societal and economic problems facing the world that lies at the nexus between agriculture, health and wealth production, consumption and distribution.  With a strong focus on harnessing the power of business as a catalyst for real-world change, the MCCHE operates through collaboration of private sector organizations with NGO/social enterprises, policy makers and academics at community, state, national and global levels to elaborate whole-of-Society solutions that promote convergence through local and systemic changes.  Beyond books (Obesity Prevention: The Role of Brain and Society on Individual Behavior; Trade, Food, Diet and Health: Perspectives and Policy Options), she published in the leading scientific journals of her field (Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology). Her work also appears in major transdisciplinary journals (Physiology and Behavior; Journal of Behavioral Decision Making, Proceedings of the National  Academy of Sciences), and in general audience and business publications such as Maclean’s, The Globe and Mail, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal.  Dr. Dube is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
