Current research projects

Through diverse scientific research and teaching activities, I built up an expertise in the field of agro-food systems and transition, and more specifically in agroecology, organic farming and conservation agriculture, from a  socio-anthropological perspective. I developed particular strengths in working at an interdisciplinary level between social science and agricultural science, as well as in conducting participatory research.

I am currently working as a researcher and research project adviser for the “Centre d'Appui pour l'Action Co-Create” funded by Innoviris ( I provide support in participatory and co-creation methodologies for research projects in the field of Urban Sustainable Food Systems and Urban Resilience.
