I am a French-Australian researcher and consultant investigating socio-technical gaps in food systems to identify practical change processes aligned with farming realities. My expertise builds from working in contrasted RD&E environments in both subsistence and broadacre agriculture. I am a Marie Curie Fellow, a guest editor of the journal Agronomy for Sustainable Development, and the lead author of the Nature Food perspective “On-Farm Experimentation to transform global agriculture”. Current projects revolve around farmer-centric research and farmers’ knowledge networks, integrating contrasted disciplinary perspectives around the use of digital technologies and the organisation of human processes. Applications include the effective translation of agronomic insights and the strategic alignment of stakeholders, for the development of products and services and the design of R&D projects and policies. I am currently based in Montpellier, where I live with my Australian partner (in life and in science!) and our 3 young children (including twins!)
