Michael Lathuillière is a Senior Research Fellow at SEI Headquarters. His work is focused on the Transparency for Sustainable Economies (Trase, trase.earth) platform. Michael joined SEI in May 2018.
Together with the Trase team, Michael is developing supply chain maps in South America to link deforestation for soy production to global supply chains. His previous research focused on the implications of soy and cattle production on the water cycle in Amazonia using both ecohydrology and supply chain impact assessment modelling (life cycle assessment).
Michael has also spent several years studying the Pantanal wetland’s carbon biogeochemistry with a focus on CO2 and CH4 emissions using eddy covariance, dissolved organic carbon measurements and soil efflux modelling.
Michael holds a BSc (2002), MSc (2011), and Ph.D (2018) from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
