I am an ecologist interested in environmental sustainability assessment applied to agri / seafood sectors, particularly to address development issues and to support both the productive sector and decision-makers. My favorite study areas are small island territories and south regions.

I have completed a master's degree in engineering in agriculture, food technology, and environmental sciences at ISARA-Lyon in France. My first steps in research were at INRAE, where I have developed an expertise on life-cycle approaches including LCA and Emergy analysis applied to aquaculture and agro-industrial sectors. My Ph.D. at Ifremer aimed to develop an integrated method based on modeling tools to assess and compare the local and global impacts of different aquaculture scenarios in Mayotte Islands. This research as well as my subsequent postdoc experience in Ifremer were largely focused on estimating ecological carrying capacity in finfish aquaculture. Since April 2021, I joined the Aquaculture and Fisheries group in WUR as a post-doc researcher to work on sustainability and circularity in aquatic food systems.
