Research

My research projects aim to understand the influence of anthropic and natural disturbances likewise, the impact of climate change on plant dynamics and the biodiversity of wetlands. My approach to these ecological and multidisciplinary questions combines paleoecological techniques (macrofossil and pollen analysis), historical ecology (Analysis of aerial photographs by remote sensing and archived documents) and field ecology. The purpose of my research is to implement wetland management and to preserve plant diversity by increasing the understanding of ecological system dynamics.
