 I am fascinated by plant biodiversity and aim to understand the foundation and protection of plant biodiversity via analyzing plant anatomy and functional traits. Thus, most of my research works analyze the relationships between plant anatomy and functional traits across multiple species. In 2015 I graduated with a master’s degree in forestry and environment engineering from the University of Antananarivo. My master thesis focused on forest community survey and wood property assessment for the restoration of a tropical mountain forest and aimed to provide scientific tools to implement wood production. In 2020, I got my Ph.D. degree from Guangxi University, China For my Ph.D. thesis, I analyzed the functional optimization and tissue spatial arrangement in the aboveground hydraulic system of magnoliids from a tropical rainforest in Madagascar and showed that tissue arrangement can optimize stem xylem and leaf hydraulic properties. In 2021, I began my postdoctoral work on analyzing stem xylem anatomy and vessel pit structure in relation to drought resistance.
