Estelle Louineau holds a master’s degree in energy engineering from the École Polytechnique de Montréal (Canada) as well as a master’s degree in energetic systems engineering from the École des Mines de Nantes (France). The French master program focused on theoretical physics and energy production and included coding courses, while the Canadian master program emphasized energetic systems modelling and the links between energy and environment.
She started to work at CIRAIG as a research assistant in January 2018 and joined the analysts team in June 2018. At this time, the projects she has been working on aimed to assess the impacts of energy production (comparison of energy supply scenarios, comparison of energy mixes, tool programming, regionalization) and the environmental footprint of Quebec consumption (development of databases, development of calculation models). She also contributes to developing advanced tools for life cycle analysis and complex systems analysis.
