Research interests

Over the past fifteen years, I worked in the field of evolutionary genetics in forest trees within the UMR 8079 ESE. After a period in which I was attached to describe the genetic structure and gene flow in forest populations, I have also worked on reproductive systems and their evolution. These last years, my concerns have been linked to processes of hybridization in a particular species complex: the ashes, Fraxinus genus mixed with phylogenetic and phylogeographic studies. I no longer work on these subjects.

At the same time, I progressively oriented my research towards new missions related to my teaching, within the framework of an ecological engineering centered on the sustainable management of territories taken as a pretext for a more interdisciplinary reflection of the consequences of our actions on the environment than just an operational technical practice.

Three main lines of research determine more specifically my current scientific orientations :

(1) Study the role of actors in socio-ecosystems at the scale of territories in relation to biodiversity and climate change,

(2) Analyze the environmental assessment process in France in relation to public policies for nature protection,

(3) Study the effects of urbanization on biodiversity and provide tools for decision-making and governance of urban and peri-urban systems.

Teaching

My interest for interdisciplinary approaches is fully reflected in my teaching, always now at the interface between ecology and social sciences.  In this context, with colleagues from SHS rather political science (with Cécile BLATRIX and Bruno VILLALBA) and strategy (Ambroise de MONTBEL), I co-manage a third year of the AgroParisTech engineering course entitled “Political Science, Ecology and Strategy” SPES.  I also intervene in the BEE (Biodiversity, Ecology, Evolution) mention of the Biosphera Graduate School of the University of Paris-Saclay, as well as in the GTDL (M1, Gestion des Territoires et Développement Local) mention of this same Graduate school around ecological engineering. In the GTDL mention, M2 GTES (Governance of Territories, Ecology and Society). I intervene around the place of a more involved ecology by appealing, as in SPES, to the philosophy of sciences and, here, ecological engineering is more a pretext for me to discuss the human-non-human relationships in the framework of an environmental ethic. I was also the pilot of the Ecology group for the book “Manuel de la Grande Transition, Form pour Transformer” (Collectif FORTES, Editions Les Liens qui Libèrent, 2020) in connection with the Campus de la Transition for which I have just joined (2021) the Scientific Council/Advisory Board.
