Vincent Hamann-Benoit completed his studies in environmental sciences (McGill University) and restoration of natural environments (University of Victoria). He is currently finishing a master’s degree in agroforestry at Université Laval. His research focuses on the characterization of yields and phenotypic traits of hybrid hazelnuts located on an agroforestry site in southern Quebec with the aim of contributing to the development of the nut industry in the province. He joined Biopterre in the fall of 2017 and has since then been providing specific assistance to the hazelnut planting project in Bas-Saint-Laurent. He is currently coordinating a project to develop in vitro multiplication processes for hazel and a nursery forest project in Saint-Valérien-de-Rimouski. He has worked in environmental education, mycology, plant engineering, boreal ecology research, and terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem restoration, including Pacific salmon spawning grounds in British Columbia.
