My commitment, improve agriculture

Who I am

Fascinated since my youth by agriculture, I helped my father on the family farm before discovering agriculture more broadly.
What I did

After agricultural studies, I worked on farms and teach before leaving to the United States. English, applied research, university ... that's what I kept. After a trip to sale in Romania, I went back to school to get an engineering degree in plant sciences. Laboratories, experimental fields and recently the management of agro-pharmaceuticals projects are part of my journey.
What I want to do

Today, I continue to specialize in the plant area to improve (health of) plants, with or without use of new technologies. The crucial challenge for the coming years is to get a crop pathogen free (or at an inoffensive level for human health). The means to put in place: prophylactic and / or curative.

The challenge : communication

The future : research
Looking for someone who like agriculture, research, as far as new technologies, do not hesitate to contact me to discuss about it.
