I completed a training as agronomist at Agrocampus Rennes (1996-1999). After a first working experience at CIRAD (Saint Pierre de la Reunion) in applied entomology (2000-2001), I obtained a PhD in Applied Ecology and Agronomy (2001-2004). I developped a decision support system to improve the management of a viral disease of cereals. Since 2006 I'm a researcher at INRA.
My scientific interests are related with the epidemiology and evolutionary biology of plant pathogens. My work aim to understand the interplay between the evolutionary and epidemiological processes acting on plant virus and plant fungi population from the host to the landscape scales. To this end, I mainly use mathematical models and statistical methods. An applied perspective is to derive durable management strategies of plant disease resistance in agricultural ecosystems. I'm also interest in decision support system bridging the gap between scientific knowledge and end-users making day-to-day crop management decisions.
