Clément Saint-Cast

Clément is a post-doc working on quantifying the influence of root anatomical traits on water dynamics in tomato roots. He loves models, databases and ontologies!


Mona Giraud

Mona is a PhD student working on a BMBF-funded project entitled “Rhizo4Bio (Phase 1): CROP - Combination of Complementary Root Phenotypes for More Resistant Agroecosystems”. She is mainly concerned with the modelling of wheat whole plant growth, water and carbon fluxes within the plant, and root-soil interactions.

Thomas Feron

Thomas is a PhD student at the Forschungszentrum Jülich, within the framework of the PhenoRob project. His research is at the intersection of plant modelling, phenotyping an machine learning.


Xiaoran Zhou

Xiaoran is a PhD student at the Forschungszentrum Jülich. His previous experiences are based on studying his major, Viticulture and Enology, with modeling and web applications. His interest is to develop a mechanistic plant model (CPLantBox)that traces carbon and water movement in maize by explicit coupling of xylem and phloem fluxes.


Adrien Heymans

Adrien is a PhD student at the UCLouvain. He is deeply interest “in silico” plants and ways to grow a more suistanable agriculture.
