Description des fonctions
Over the last 20 years, I have worked at national and international levels, in several countries (France, Mauritania, Senegal, Thailand, Lao PDR, Indonesia), in multi-disciplinary teams, in the fields of soil conservation, biophysics and natural resource. I have worked also on scientific instrumentation and experimental techniques.

Key Qualifications:
Soil science:                                     Physicochemical characteristics of  soil, hydrological assessment and transfer,
                                                         study of degraded and submerged soil.
Plant ecology - Tree production:       Rubber tree, Teak tree, roots development.
Soil degradation - Agronomy :          Rice crop Africa and Asia
Telemetry:                                         Acquisition and automatic transfer of the data. (data logger, sensors)

My current activities on team research interests include (i) investigating the links between land use, root growth dynamics and soil erosion in the mountain environments of Northern Lao P.D.R., (ii) understanding root-soil interactions and crop-intercrop competition processes in rubber tree plantations of NE Thailand, (iii) investigating the long term impact of agricultural practices on the environment and teak plantation, in Northern Lao P.D.R.
