Biography

I am a plant ecophysiologist whose research focuses on the causes of intra- and interspecific trait variation in crops in order to understand the impact of artificial selection.

  • Since 2021: post-doc, CEFE-CNRS
  • 2017-2020: PhD Ecophysiology and Plant Adaptation, UMR LEPSE (INRAE, Montpellier SupAgro)
  • 2014-2016: MSc Plant Biotechnology, Wageningen University
  • 2011-2014: BSc Plant Sciences, Wageningen University

 

Research

My current project is financed by the ERC Constraints (Cyrille Violle) and the ERC PhenoVigour (François Vasseur). We are investigating how artificial selection impacts trait covariations and the phenotypic space. To do that we perform field experiments using sorghum in collaboration with the CIRAD.
