I am a paleo-ecologist, interested mostly by the fire ecology and its biogeochemical consequences on ecosystems.
I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at Chrono-environnement lab (Besancon, France) and I am focused on studying the impact of fertilization on grasslands taxonomic, functional and phylogenetic diversities.
I am a paleo-ecologist, interested mostly by the fire ecology and its consequences on ecosystems. Disturbances such as fire, herbivory and drought events, are key factors acting on the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems. A cross-ecosystems approach allows me to investigate how fire ecology emerges across differences in climate, vegetation assemblages, herbivores or human history over the past 20,000 years. This work is interdisciplinary, and I collaborate frequently with mineralogist, pedologist, and biogeochemist to globally understand the impact of fire in different vegetation, and different mother rock. I also used to work with modelers and land managers to go further by integrating the current economical needs, and the future impacts on ecosystems.
Key-words: droughts, fire, non-forested ecosystems, ancient DNA, charcoal, Sporormiella, pollen, nutrient cycling..
