I am a research engineer in the team Conception and Evaluation of Horticultural Cropping Systems and ideotypes. My research focus is on the design of integrated horticultural production systems by combining model-based design methods (with the team modelers) and prototyping methods (with experts from research, technical institutes, experimental stations and with producers). I also contribute to characterize the decision rules of growers for orchard management and I analyse agronomic performances of these orchards.

Past :

While at INRA GQE Le Moulon, I worked on participatory ideotyping methodology to design wheat mixtures adapted to production contexts. We produced innovative blending rules and highlighted the need to better understand the interactions between varieties in a mixture to assess and refine those rules. We provided relevant performance criteria for the evaluation of wheat mixtures. This work was realized in the Wheatamix project.
