Research information:

As an agronomist by training, with a PhD in genetics and plant breeding, I’ve worked in a wide array of contexts and countries. I have held long-term positions in Ivory Coast, Réunion Island, Canada, Brazil and France, as well as gone on missions in close to 40 countries. My scientific efforts have centred mostly on corn and sugar cane. Over time, given my responsibilities as a director of research, I became interested in the links between the social sciences and agronomics in general, with a special focus on the interaction between social dynamics, governance models and global transformations in rural settings.

Over the past four years, I worked as research and strategy director for CIRAD (Centre de coopération internationale en recherche agronomique pour le développement), which focuses on the prime issues surrounding the role of agriculture in southern hemisphere nations, both from the discipline’s traditional perspectives (production, transformation, food production and processing, etc.) and from its newer angles (environmental impact, ecological services, poverty reduction, land management, multi-functionality, etc.). At CIRAD, I played an active role in recasting and redirecting the research issues and scientific strategies of the major French, European and international centres and institutes in the field.
