Michael Lathuillière joined SEI in May 2018 as a Data Scientist for the Trase platform.
Michael’s previous research focused on the implications of soybean and cattle production options on the water cycle in Amazonia using both ecohydrology and supply chain impact assessment modeling.
He has prior experience in product and river basin water footprint assessments, for which he measured water use for cropland and proposed new models for water use in life cycle assessment.
He has also spent several years studying the Pantanal wetland’s carbon biogeochemistry with a focus on CO2 and CH4 emissions.
Michael has been an active member of the Water Use in Life Cycle Assessment (WULCA) Working Group since 2013. He holds a BSc (2002), MSc (2011), and Ph.D (2018) from the University of British Columbia, Canada.
