Engineer in INRA from 1988

1995 - PhD thesis in agronomical sciences.


Current :

I am currently part of the EPI team working on integrated horticultural crop production. My activities are mainly related to three domains :

- The analysis of growers’ practices to characterize the decision rules in orchard management and their impacts on environment. Characterizations of agronomic performances of orchards.

- Researchs in irrigation management and training systems in peach trees (indicators of tree water status, tree pruning and management)

- Participation to working groups in relation to tree cropping system design.

Past (1988-1999) :

While at INRA UR Agronomie Bordeaux, I mainly worked on the plant nutrition in maize crops, particularly the effects of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizations and I developed indicators to plant nitrogen status.
