With 26 publications, a small revolution in the field of environmental ecology, an international network of global warming observatories, prestigious research fellowships, and promising work on the role of microorganisms in the soil in atmospheric carbon flow, the future has never looked brighter!

To the question “What does INRA mean to you?”, she replies “INRA? I love everything from its canteen to its workplace.  I love the ambiance, a major contributing factor to success in the field! I love that we are given so much autonomy in our projects. INRA is also a tremendous network: an exceptional pool of talented researchers and experts from fields that really complement each other.”
