Associate professor in agronomy at Institut Agro / SAS

Phone: (+33) 2 23 48 55 61


Address: Institut Agro, UMR SAS, 65 rue de St-Brieuc, CS 84215, 35042 Rennes Cedex, France

Expertise: Agronomy

Keywords: Agronomy, environmental assessment, farming systems, territory


  • Plant sciences, integrated crop and livestock farming systems
  • Multicriteria assessment of farming systems and territories


Current research topics

The main topic of my research is the multicriteria assessment of farming systems and farming territories.
I am interested in understanding how farming activities influence biogeochemical flows (C, N, P, water), and in designing more agroecological farming systems with farmers.
