I am interested in contemporary ways of studying and managing nature in the biodiversity era. I particularly focus on the interface between nature managers and scientists. Most of my research fields are located in mountain protected areas.
In the frame of the ITEM Labex, I have contributed to works on the scientific councils of protected areas in the Northern Alps. I am currently involved in the project entitled “Making mountain areas singular”, with a particular focus on the role of knowledge in these processes.
