I have worked for CABI's South East Asia centre as an ICM Advisor since May 2017. In this position, I work with various stakeholders, including international organizations, research universities, governmental institutions and local partners to promote sustainable solutions for crop management and to support farmers. I contribute to the development of training materials (brochures, manuals, seminars) of farmers and extension workers, within the context of the effects of climate change on pest management and soil practices.
I am an eco-entomologist by training with an MSc in Ecology and MSc in Agriculture Engineering (Bordeaux Sciences Agro). I have knowledge in Integrated Pest Management and biological control, and experience working with sustainable agriculture as consultant in organic farming in Vietnam.
Before joining CABI, I worked as researcher in Applied Entomology and Chemical Ecology in France, Switzerland, Australia, Czech Republic, Finland and Vietnam. I obtained my PhD in Zoology (2010) in the USA where I developed research on a bark beetle predator (Cleridae) used for biological control in North America forests.
