At LEPSE since January 2015, my work focus on the adaptation of cereals to climate change. I was previously at the UMR GDEC in Clermont-Ferrand, France, where I worked for 13 years on wheat grain quality. Since 2002 I have been developing the wheat simulation SiriusQuality.
I am involved in several national and international collaborative projects (see links below). In 2014, I joined the leadership team of the international project AgMIP-Wheat to which I contribute since its establishment in 2011. The goals of the AgMIP wheat team are to compare and improve wheat models in order to simulate better the impact of climate change as well as to explore adaptation options for improving both agricultural sustainability and global food security.
SiriusQuality (SQ) is a process-based model that simulates the phenology and canopy development of small grain cereals and the fluxes of water, nitrogen and carbon in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum in response to weather and crop management.
