Clement Bataille received his MSc in environmental engineering in 2008 from the Institut National Polytechniques de Toulouse (France). He received his PhD in Geology in 2014 from the University of Utah. He spent two years in Houston Texas working as a geoscientist before returning to academia and taking a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He joined the University of Ottawa as an assistant professor in Earth and Environmental Sciences in the fall of 2017. His lab group, the SAIVE group (Spatio-temporal Analytics of Isotope Variations in the Environment) uses spatiotemporal isotope variations to 1) Develop geolocation tools in ecology and forensics sciences, 2) Investigate weathering processes in rivers, and 3) Reconstruct paleoenvironments in greenhouse periods.
