Chercheur / Research scientist

Chercheur au LISC et chercheur associé au LIP6 (UPMC)
Links between individual and collective viability; Robustness, viability and resilience in environmental models; Geometric methods, decision support.
Viabilité individuelle et collective; étude de la robustesse et de la résilience de modèles de viabilité ; aide à la décision.

As a researcher at LISC (INRAE, ex-Irstea, ex-Cemagref), my main present research interest is to study the link between individual and collective viability and its impact in decision support. It has a great potential for management of multi-usages commons.

Mes centres d’intérêt en tant que chercheur : les lien entre viabilité individuelle et collective, l’étude de la robustesse et de la résilience de modèles de viabilité ; le point de vue géométrique vs. le point de vue probabiliste en aide à la décision.

As an engineer, I try to promote the use of models for Agriculture and Environment.
Mon objectif en tant qu’ingénieur est de promouvoir l’utilisation des modèles pour l’agriculture et l’environnement. Je m’intéresse à la formulation de problèmes de viabilité et l’utilisation des outils de la théorie mathématique de la viabilité pour l’aide à la décision. Ceci implique des collaborations entre plusieurs équipes et disciplines (IA, informatique, mathématiques appliquées, SHS).
