Current :

I am interested in modelling crop-pest functional interactions under influence of plant genotype and cultural practices

Past :
During my PhD thesis and post-doc I used mathematics and ecological theory to investigate first principles of the ecology of aquatic species, population dynamics and to explore alternative policies for natural resource management in a multi-objective framework.
