The focus of my research and analysis is set on the agricultural and environmental sector, specifically on the management and government of life. My research consists in analyzing the construction of metrics and standards by which actors coordinate their knowledge and their action.

I am currently conducting research about the organization of animal genetic resources and the genomic selection. My objective is to conduct robust qualitative research that jointly examines two phenomena: the “genomics revolution” (particularly related to the development of high-throughput sequencing) and the “digital revolution” (particularly related to the development of digital information technology). These profound technical changes are accompanied by major organizational, economic and social transformations that need to be studied to understand how they transform the coordination of agricultural, commercial and scientific actors at different levels.

I have conducted research on (1) politics of nature (controversial management of wolf population), (2) organization and governance of risk (management of Desert Locust Outbreaks in West Africa), (3) “systems of professions” in the social worlds of livestock production (professional identities in dairy cattle sector).
