I am a researcher in ecology. My
research focus on biocontrol strategies with macro-organisms (insects
and mites). I am particularly interested in how biocontrol agents
behave and interact with pests and plants. My research projects
concern two main problematics: (i) arthropod behaviour and their
interaction with plants; (ii) population dynamics and pest control
optimization in agro-ecosystems.
