01/09/1994 to 01/07/1999 - Research institute (IRBI France, IRD Congo) - Researcher-PhD student and development worker in Biology

My research work was undertaken in the general context of chemical interactions existing in plant pest/beneficial insect systems during the phases of host seeking and "acceptance" by their natural enemies. The chemical signals involved in such interactions, namely from their origin (at host-pest level) with their perception, up to their behavioural expression (at beneficial insect level) were identified and characterized taking a multidisciplinary approach.
» Collaboration with teams from several disciplines.
» Choice and development of experimental techniques.
» Establishment and implementation of experimental methods and protocols (laboratory and field).
» Carrying out of experiments using numerous molecular biology, biochemistry, electrophysiology, microscopy and behavioural techniques.
