SETAC Europe LCA Young Scientist Award 2014 Goes To Anne-Marie Boulay
Tomas Rydberg, SETAC Europe Life Cycle Assessment Steering Committee
Anne-Marie Boulay is the winner of the 2014 SETAC Europe Young Scientist Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Award.
The SETAC Europe LCA Steering Committee recognizes Anne-Marie for her groundbreaking work on water impact assessment modeling and her international contributions to help turn these methodologies into practice.
Anne-Marie completed her Ph.D. in 2013 in the Chemical Engineering Department at the École Polytechnique de Montréal in Canada. Her research focused on the development of water footprinting methods within the LCA framework. She made original and important scientific contributions during her Ph.D. research, which resulted in many peer-reviewed publications. Anne-Marie is already familiar to the SETAC community as she won the SETAC Young Scientist Award for Best Platform Presentation in 2010.
In addition to her scientific research, Anne-Marie led and continues to lead many water footprinting activities in the international LCA community, where she is recognized for her capacity to generate consensus among different points of methodological views. She is the Canadian delegate in the ISO Water Footprint Standard Working Group and is currently chairing the Water Use LCA (WULCA) group under the UNEP-SETAC Life Cycle Initiative. Her contributions to a two-day water footprint training program for developing countries under a UNEP program are also noticed.
We congratulate Anne-Marie for her achievements and contributions with this award, and we wish her a fruitful continuation of her activities!
