Research activity

I work on the pest of bananas and plantains. My main actual focus is the study of the arthropod communities and their relationships between the vegetal diversity in tropical agroecosystems. However, I try to work on the different biological agents of these agroecosytems and used modelling tools to integreate ecological processes observed in the field to improve my understanding of ecosystem functionning.I recently start to developp a methodology based on computer vision to study arthropod communities (PredaTV project)
