Research interests and expertise
My current research builds on the interplay between mathematical/statistical modelling and agro-ecology. My main interest lies in developing methodological approaches to derive ecology sound strategies for pest and disease management, thereby reducing the dependence to pesticides. This leads to a set of connected research topics, e.g.:
- Pest risk assessment
- Multi-scale modelling of ecological processes
- Identification of suppressive agro-ecological landscape patterns and their socio-economic viability (in collaboration with ecologists and economists at INRAE)
- Determination of the agricultural practices impacting ecosystemic services (in collab. with INRAE SAD)
Expertise involved is quantitative ecology and agro-ecology, pest and disease control, population dynamics and epidemiological modelling, data mining (machine learning).
