I am a lecturer in rural geography at the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Montpellier in France (CIHEAM Montpellier) and part of the research lab UMR TETIS. My principal research interests lie in the field of spatial planning and sustainable rural development. My current work looks at the impact of climate change on landscapes and livelihoods under different policy scenarios using spatial modelling. I have a particular expertise in quantitative modelling applied to rural territories from a social, environmental and economic perspective.
