**Scientific fields** Plant biology - Ecology from individual to community - Population genetics, Phylogeny, Genomics – Biological invasions and Biological control **Research** My work focuses on the study of **interactions between plants and their biotic** (facilitation, cooperation, mutualism, parasitism) and **abiotic** (water) **environments** in a context of global change (climate change and biological invasions). I am currently developing my research on: (i) the **trees response of drought**, in terms of strategies and phenotypic plasticity, with a view to selecting the most suitable genotypes for forestry; (ii) the relationships between trees and their **endophytic microbiota** in the global response to water stress; (iii) the **facilitation/cooperation relationships between plants** according to their kinship under water stress conditions; (iv) the dynamics and dispersal capacity of **invasive plant species**. **Teaching** General ecology, population and community ecology, functional ecology, plant biology, plant and animal identification, statistics, GIS, business creation, molecular phylogeny and evolution - in Bachelor of Life Sciences, Professional Bachelor and Master. **Miscellaneous** Guest editor of the special issues: *“[Omics Analysis of Tree Responses to Drought](”* in Forests (ISSN 1999-4907) ; *“Biological invasions in agroecosystems: insights for sustainable management”* in Agronomy (ISSN 2073-4395) Nominated expert at ANSES in a thematic group: *“[final report 2020 - Ragweed in France: costs of health impacts and courses of action](”* Nominated member of the national commission of agricultural professor-researchers CNECA 5 crop production Diploma supervisor of the Professional Degree in organic farming, advise and development: *“**[ABCD](”* Supervisor (conception) of the *“[Orchard conservatory's collections](”* of Clermont Auvergne University Supervisor (conception-production) of the University botanical trail of the Cézeaux campus - *“**[SenBUC](”* (educational tool for students and schoolchildren for local trees, shrubs and lianas learning) **Laboratory** UMR 547 [PIAF INRAe-UCA]( Research team: [FOLEAU]( [Université Clermont Auvergne]( ([UCA](, UFR Biologie, 1 Impasse Amélie Murat, 63178 AUBIERE (FR) – adress [map]( <>, (+33) 0473407929 Lab [web page](
