CIRAIG / Polytechnique Montreal

Guillaume is a postdoctoral researcher, jointly employed by the CIRAIG, Polytechnique Montreal, and the IndEcol Programme at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). His research is focused on the coherent integration of industrial ecology tools and methods to yield a more comprehensive and accurate guidance toward a more sustainable socioeconomic metabolism.
