Brief bio: Despite an early fascination on how plants transform sun energy into chemical energy, I have always preferred physics and mathematics classes. I entered the Ecole polytechnique and chose to learn various fields from quantum physics to the Galois’ theory. Since then, I dedicated my work to the application of physical methods for the understanding of photosynthesis and plant physiology. New technologies and physical approaches are highly improving our understanding of plants and I aim at contributing to this revolution.
