More about me

My CV iD

I try to understand how plant can better cope with changes in water availability during their growth cycle. To do so, I look at roots, their structure and their organisation . In a wider context, I want to help create sustainable agrosystems that are resilient to drought event and lack of water.

Plants’ complexity calls for integrative research strategies such as combining innovative plant phenotyping pipelines with powerful data analysis and modeling tools. Combining computational tools with the latest biological knowledge opens new horizons for plant research.

I believe in Open Science, the importance of science communication and good bread.

I am currently an Assistant Professor between the UCLouvain and the Forschungszentrum Juelich.

I recently move from Twitter to BlueSky.
