My expertise / skills : My discipline, chemical ecology, is at the interface of ecology, chemistry and biology. I am mainly interested in semiochemicals (pheromones and allelochemicals) that are involved in the modification of animal behaviour, and insects in particular.

The focus is on insects of agricultural interest, including crop pests and their natural enemies. I am also very much interested in invasive alien species. Developing new biological control methods is an objective of my research.

I am also interested in thanatochemistry, the volatile organic compounds released from a decaying corpse, and interactions with necrophagous insects.
Disciplines
I am working on :
Behavioral Biology
Entomology
Organic Chemistry
Plant Protection
Keywords : chemical ecology, entomology, climate change, pheromones, ethology
Project description : I work on climate change and insect-plant interactions in agricultural context
Networking opportunities : International conference on Chemical ecology
