Since March 2022, Karine Dufossé is a research engineer in the ELSA team of the UMR ITAP at INRAE. She is currently working on the European project MULTISOURCE (evaluation of nature-based solutions for urban water treatment, https://multisource.eu/), with the use of life cycle assessments (LCA) at the scale of technologies and then of the territory; and soon on the CALALOU project (evaluation of local agriculture in Guadeloupean food and nutrition https://umr-moisa.cirad.fr/l-unite/projets-de-recherche/public-projet-calalou).
She holds a PhD in environmental sciences (2013) from AgroParisTech, in connection with the UMR Ecosys at INRAE Grignon, with a focus on the environmental assessment of lignocellulosic biomass crops for the production of 2nd generation biofuels, with field experience in GHG measurement and mathematical modelling, with a particular focus on N2O emissions, for their integration in crop LCAs. Interested in the modelling of agricultural ecosystems, she also carried out a PostDoc, also in the UMR Ecosys, on dynamic and spatialized cadastres of ammonia (NH3) emissions linked to nitrogen fertilization in France (ADEME Amp’Air and PolQA projects).
Karine graduated as a general engineer from INSA Rouen (2010), with a specialisation in industrial and environmental risk management, and holds a Master of Science in Land and Natural Resources Management from Cranfield University (UK) (2010). She was a contract employee at AgroParisTech (2014) and then a teacher-researcher at UniLaSalle Rennes, on the theme of environmental assessments from 2018 to 2022.
The themes of this research are: environmental assessment, LCA, GHG, agriculture, nature-based solutions.
