Supplying carbon needs of society without fossil resources
Lorie Hamelin is one of only 44 researchers who have received funding from the French presidential climate plan “Make our planet great again”. In this framework, she is, since August 2018, establishing a carbon management research line within the facilities of the Engineering of Biological Systems and Processes (LISBP) Department of INSA-Toulouse (Federal University of Toulouse), from 2018 to 2023. Through her Cambioscop project, she aims to develop sustainable, tailored and dynamic bioeconomy strategies for French policy makers.
Prior to her research in France, Dr. Hamelin worked as a senior researcher (invited) at the Danish Centre for Circular Bioeconomy (CBIO; 2017-18). She worked as an assistant professor in the Centre for Life cycle Engineering at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU; 2014-2016), and has been recruited in the framework of the European ERA Chair Programme to work as a senior scientist on bioeconomy research in Poland (2016 – 2017), prior to moving to France. She further founded her own consulting company in France.
