Parisean, living in La Rochelle, France
Anaïs is a civil and energy engineer actively engaged in the design of resilient/sustainable buildings and systems, with the lowest impact on climate change possible; She is an energetic, passionate, and enthusiastic woman striving to make a positive difference in our planet.
She obtained her Ph.D. in civil engineering from La Rochelle University, during which she gained expertise in building physics and climate change. Her research focuses on the adaptation of buildings to future climate, especially to reduce the health heat related risk inside buildings during heatwaves. Prior to this, she worked as a researcher for the world’s leader in sustainable materials for habitat Saint Gobain in Boston, Massachussetts (USA), and previously obtained a double master’s degree. One from Aalborg University (Denmark) in sustainable energy planning and management and another from ECE Paris (France) in energy engineering.
Anaïs loves spending time in nature to connecting her body, heart, and soul to our beautiful mother earth. Anaïs’s love for nature was triggered by her many early visits to the house her grandpa had built in the countryside region of Brittany, France. In her free time, she frequently volunteers, specifically in construction work to help people in need to have a better home. One of her dreams and future goals is to build a low-tech tiny house for herself using local materials to be more immersed in and inspired by nature every day while working to popularize this habitat type. Anaïs also enjoys a multitude of outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, climbing, surfing and yoga.
