I am currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Montpellier. My research project is supervised by Sonia Kéfi and Fabien Anthelme.  The aim of my Ph.D. thesis is to better understand plant-plant interactions in communities of harsh environments and to study the effects of these interactions for ecosystem functioning. I therefore use a combination of approaches such as modelling, experiments and observational studies.
