Research scientist - Forage plant ecophysiology and agronomy

With the intention of increasing the place of perennial forages in cropping systems and increasing their utilization by ruminants, my research activities aim to 1) quantify ecosystem services provided by perennial forages; 2) optimize yield, nutritional value and persistence of perennial forage crops through improved management practices (choice of species, forage mixtures, harvest stages, fertilization) and; 3) increase plant nutrient use efficiency to optimize agroecosystems environmental performance.

My research program contributes directly to two strategic objectives of the Forage and Beef area at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, namely increasing agricultural productivity and enhancing environmental performance.
