A new collaborator for Sayari !
Sayari is pleased to welcome Yohan Lanier who joins us as a life cycle analysis engineer.
Interview of Yohan:
Why did you choose Sayari?
Y : During a previous internship, I had the opportunity to discover the realm of food production through aquaculture and to learn about the food related issues. I was already quite aware of environment related issues and had learned about it on my free time but I had very little academic knowledge in these fields. I took advantage of my exchange semester abroad to study (part of) environmental engineering. Joining Sayari is an opportunity to increase my knowledge in these fields and to put it into practice on food products (mainly) while benefiting from a rigourous scientific framework.
What will you be working on?
Y : I currently work under Aurore’s supervision on the life cycle assessment of an intensive aquaculture farm. I will also have the opportunity to contribute to a study which aims to compare various impact assessment methods on terrestrial biodiversity. This last project is linked to consumer information on food products.
What environmental challenges are you the most concerned with ?
Y : What to begin with? Climate change is probably the one we hear the most about in the media, especially CO2 emissions which is only a single aspect of it. Biodiversity collapse is quite worrying as well, very little publicized and, although there is no competition between those two topics, it is at least as important as climate change. Finally, there are other issues which are just as joyful, such as depletion of fossil fuels, impacts of mining or destruction of soils (especially agricultural) without forgetting social aspects, which are inseparable from environmental issues.
What are your favorite hobbies?
Y : Climbing – both bouldering and rope climbing -, hiking whenever I can get out of Paris, quality time with friends and a little bit of photography
Do you have a motto?
Y : « Carbon Neutral since 2007 » Oups ! Sorry this one is from a famous US company which develops a search engine ! I don’t have any motto as cool as this one but there is one idea like : «Each of us is what they are because of what we all are ».
If you were an animal, you would be…
Y : Probably a panda, I love to eat and sleep
If you were to go to a deserted island, what are the three things you would take with you ?
Y : A GPS, gasoline and a boat
