I am a soil biogeochemist and joined the Soil Biology Group in September 2021, after spending five years at the Technical University of Munich in Freising, Germany. I defended my doctoral project on the role of earthworms on soil organic matter dynamics in September 2016 at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France.
I dedicate my research activities in gathering fundamental understanding of soil biogeochemical processes and developing applied strategies for a sustainable management of soils in response to global change challenges. My researches focus on carbon and nutrient dynamics at the interface between soil, plants, soil fauna and microorganisms. I use an holistic approach, based on both laboratory and field experiments, which calls for close collaborations across disciplines (e.g., chemistry, microbiology and plant physiology) and the merging of techniques to bridge spatial scales. For this purpose, I conduct projects that associate bulk quantitative information together with fine scale elemental and isotopic information to highlight the role of plant-soil-organisms interactions on soil biogeochemical properties.
