Amandine Pastor

Amandine Pastor is a researcher at INRAE and works on the integration of ecosystem services and spatial dimensions of water and carbon in life cycle assessment. Previously, she worked at the Faculty of Sciences of Lisbon in the framework of the H2020 LOCOMOTION project aiming at integrating water and soil dynamics in an integrated assessment model based on renewable energy use.
She is an agricultural engineer and holds a PhD in hydrology from Wageningen University (Netherlands). She has worked on the impact of global change on water resources and the different trade-offs between environmental flows and food security. She is specialized in earth system modelling, climate change and ecosystem services. She also has field experience in sustainable agriculture and soil and water conservation projects in Europe and overseas.

Topic: Land use, environmental flows, life cycle assessment, ecosystem services, earth system model, climate change

Nicolas Mat (2012 – 2015)

Nicolas MAT has been working for over 6 years as a project manager in the field of industrial ecology and energy/climate change for public authorities and industrial sector, in France and abroad. In October 2012, he started  a PhD thesis in the LGEI of Ecole des Mines d’Ales. His research project questions the role of port and harbor areas in the context of an ecological and energy transition. He also teaches at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (Faculty of Geography and Environment), University of Franche-Comté and the Ecole des Mines d’Ales in the field of industrial ecology and project management.

Juliette Cerceau (2010-2013)

Coming from social sciences and graduated in environmental management (INSA de Lyon), Juliette Cerceau, 27 years old, started a PhD thesis at the Ecole des Mines d’Alès (EMA).
As a consultant in sustainable development within Auxilia (a French consulting agency), she participated actively to action-research projects dealing with industrial ecology (COMETHE, CONFLUENT, DEPART).
Since September 2010, she chose to take part in the improvement of both theory and methods in industrial ecology by fulfilling a thesis project on water metabolism in harbors. Her social sciences’ background allows her to study industrial ecology through the prism of game theory and change management.

Véronique Bellon-Maurel (2008 – Présent)

V. Bellon Maurel is agricultural engineer (1986), engineer in chief at « Ponts, Eaux et des Forêts », doctor and research supervisor in process engineering (INP Toulouse).

Since 2004, V. Bellon Maurel is professor at Montpellier SupAgro and carries out researches at UMR ITAP Laboratory (Information and Technologies for Agroprocesses).

V. Bellon Maurel is specialized in measurement and sensors and more especially in Near Infrared Spectrometry for assessing the composition of products (food, agricultural commodities and soil …). Since 2007, V. Bellon Maurel is the head of the Regioal Platform Ecotech-LR and has actively contributed to the set-up of the ELSA research pole. She coordinates the European Project Ecotool (IRSES 23 08 51) on tools for sustainibility assessment in agriculture and forestry and is national coordinator for Interreg project Ecotech-Sudoe (International Network on Life Cycle Analysis and Industrial Ecology). Since a sabbatical leave at Water Research Centre of UNSW, Sydney (2009-2010), she initiates researches in LCA on vineyard. She is presently supervising 2 PhD thesis related to LCA and water (E Loiseau, et L Pradeleix).
