Ecological engineering, CIRAD (France).
Main activitiesI am interested in the functioning of agroecological cropping systems with plant cover in tropical environments. I am studying the mechanisms governing the dynamics and efficiency of trophic resources in the presence of a living or dead organic cover in order to characterise the long-term consequences of the application of such systems on available natural resources.
I am studying the agronomic consequences of these systems both on the short- and long-term productivity of the crops grown and on the technical and economic performance of the farms.
I also analyse how these systems are adopted by different types of producers under different conditions.
Last but not least, I am working on participatory methods for the design and multi-criteria evaluation of agroecological systems.
