I am a researcher working for CIRAD at the UMR AMAP lab in Montpellier, France. I am specialized on Functional-Structural Plant Modelling (FSPM), and my research interests include ecophysiology, environmental physics, tree architecture, computer models and agronomy.
PhD in Environmental Physics, 2017
Bordeaux University, France
Master in Environmental Sciences, Mathematics and Modeling, 2013
AgroParisTech (Kourou and Montpellier)
Licence (=Bsc) in Ecology, 2011
Toulouse University III (Paul Sabatier)
The different research projects I work(ed) on
ARBRATATOUILLE aims to improve our knowledge on interactions between trees and vegetable production, and to propose new perspectives for agroforestry system conception and management.
Coffee-flux is a platform where collaborative research on coffee agroforestry is promoted: data are being shared between collaborators and positive interactions are enhanced. The philosophy is to concentrate several investigations on one specific site and for several years, to share a useful common experimental database, to develop modelling and to publish results in highly-ranked scientific journals.
Quantification of the Carbon, Water and Nutrient Balances, at the Ecosystem Scale, for a Rotation of the Eucalyptus using Flux tower
The MACACC project (Modelling to ACCompany stakeholders towards Adaptation of forestry and agroforestry systems to global Changes)
ReMIX is a Research and Innovation project, funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 Program under Societal Challenge 2. ReMIX will exploit the benefits of species mixtures to design more diverse and resilient arable cropping systems, making use of agro-ecology principles.
The models I use or develop
I am the author of the collaborative free open-source book “Le compagnon de l’utilisateur R”. This book is a side project that I work on during my free time, so this is still in progress. It is a book about how to use the R progamming language along with RStudio for data science, graphics, reproducible research and more, using state of the art tools such as tidyverse, ggplot2, plotly, data.table etc…
It is in french only for the moment, but will be translated to other languages hopefully.
