I am a governmental research scientist working in Québec, Canada, on problems related to conifer regeneration silviculture in the boreal forest. My research interests cover reforestation, competition, ecophysiology, nutrition and ecology. Since 2005, I am an Associate Editor to the Canadian Journal of Forest Research and New Forests, two leading forestry journals. I am Adjunct Professor at Université Laval, Université of Sherbrooke, Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Université du Québec à Chicoutimi where I supervise graduate students. I am also a member of the Centre for Forest Research since 2007.
