I'm a PhD student in Ecology at the University of Bordeaux (France). The aim of my project is to unravel microbial interactions on leaf surfaces --aka phyllosphere, by using statistical models and machine-learning techniques. My study system is grapevine phyllosphere and one major foliar disease, grapevine powdery mildew.
My findings will be used to improve methods of biocontrol. My PhD grant and my research are funded by the INRA and Bordeaux Sciences Agro. My supervisors are Corinne Vacher (UMR Biogeco) and Jessica Vallance (UMR SAVE).
