Based in Montpellier, France, my research focuses on how to create and sustain multifunctional farms and landscapes that provide nutritious food while contributing to biodiversity conservation and climate mitigation targets. I use a range of approaches, including surveys, spatial data analysis, modelling, systematic literature reviews, and statistical analysis, to address practical research questions at global, national and landscape levels.
Currently, I am part of the Alliance Transformational Agroecology initiative (2022-present), working on how to implement and scale agroecology for more sustainable food systems in Burkina Faso, India, Kenya, Lao PDR, Peru, Tunisia, Zimbabwe. I am a researcher on the FOLU Food, Agriculture, Biodiversity, Land-use and Energy (FABLE) initiative (2017-present) working with 20+ country teams to quantify food and land use system contributions to achieving global biodiversity, climate, and food security targets. I contribute to the Nexus Gains initiative (2022-present) synthesizing evidence and using spatial data to identify opportunity hotspots for diversity-based interventions to reduce and reverse key threats to people, nature, and farming systems. I am also part of the EU TRANSITIONS project (2021-24) working on improving metrics and tools for monitoring agroecology uptake. In my spare time, I am a keen hiker, reader, cook and tennis player.
