Research experience

My research works combines analytical studies on stakeholders' decision processes (farmers, agro-industries, irrigation scheme managers) producteurs, agro-industriels, gestionnaires de périmètres irrigués) with the design of discussion support systems to be transferred to consultants and advisers. These support systems include simulation tools addressing specific issues: redesign of mill supply management in the sugarcane industry (MAGI®, to be downloaded at - Le Gal et al., 2008 ; Lejars et al., 2008), management of irrigation schemes (WaDI - de Nys et al., 2008), redesign of feeding systems in dairy farms (Dalib - Le Gal et al., 2009 ; DairyMoTion, ongoing work), crop-livestock interactions in mixed farms (Cikεda, Clifs - ongoing works). These tools are also used with crop scientists designing innovative cropping systems, in order to evaluate ex-ante the value of technical innovations for farm types or real farms.
