Claudiane Ouellet-Plamondon is a professor in the Department of Construction Engineering at École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). She holds the Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Multifunctional Materials for the Circular Economy and Ecological Transition. She studied engineering at Dalhousie University, holds a master's degree in biological sciences from Université de Montréal, a doctorate in geoenvironmental engineering from Cambridge University and was a postdoctoral fellow at ETH Zurich. At ÉTS, she conducts research and teaches construction materials and technology management. Her current projects focus on functional materials, 3D printing of mortars, biobased materials, aerogels, wood and earth construction, scientific evaluation of the valorization of industrial residues into cement additives and other value-added materials, sustainable materials for greenhouses in a circular economy perspective, robotization of construction, environmental impact of buildings and cities. With her team, she carries out experimental designs to formulate materials and study the effects of environmental variables on their behavior. She has developed a greenhouse gas and energy consumption calculator for the use of bauxite residues in the cement industry. She is interested in modeling the prices of concrete, wood and steel, with a view to understanding urban metabolism.
