I work at the Alpine Ecology Lab (LECA) in Grenoble as a permanent researcher employed by the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). I am interested in a range of topics in coexistence theory, community ecology, plant-soil interactions and ecosystem stability and functioning. My recent projects seek to better understand the ecological processes that drive community assembly and the transient responses of plant and soil communities to environmental change. The integration of plant-soil feedbacks in community assembly theory is one of the main motivations of my work. Statistical analyses, field experiments and process-based simulation models form my toolbox for studying these questions.
