Curriculum Vitae

Since 2006    Associate professor at AgroSup Dijon (D2A2E), affiliated researcher at the UMR Agroécologie
 2005-2006    Full time teaching assistant at the Laboratoire des Sciences Végétales, EA 209, Paris Faculté des Sciences Pharmaceutiques et Biologiques. "Study of the mechanisms involved in the resistance to antifungal agents and in the process of filamentation in pathogen yeasts of Candida genus"
 2004-2005    Post-doctoral student at the Laboratoire de Physiologie Végétale Appliquée,  EA 2388, UPMC. "Study of the transcripts involved in the germination and dormancy of barley seed through cDNA-AFLP"
 2004              PhD, UPMC, in « Diversity of living organisms », "Epidemiologic, ecophysiologic and agronomic study of the Orobanche ramosa L./Brassica napus L pathosystem".


I work on the agro-ecology of interactions, most specifically on the biotic regulations between weed flora and the parasitic plant Phelipanche ramosa in the context of integrated crop protection.

  • Characterization of P. ramosa populations’ genetic variability and impact of weed flora on the parasite’s demographic dynamic.
  • Characterization of the functional traits of P. ramosa contributing to the success of its cycle on its host.
  • Characterization of the phytosanitary risk linked to the modifications in cropping systems and to the change they induce in flora (P. ramosa model).


  • Development of a prototype model (PheraSys) for predicting the effect of cropping systems on the dynamic of P. ramosa in interaction with non-parasitic weed flora.
  • Deciphering of the concept of allelopathy as a method for controling P. ramosa.

I also work on the characterization of the infestation and genetic variability of hemiparasite Rhamphicarpa fistulosa populations in Togo.

I am a member of the International Parasitic Plant Society (IPPS) and of the British Ecological Society (BES).
