Educational and work
I earned my MSc at AgroParisTech in Paris. I then graduated from both AgroParisTech and Laval University for PhD studying calcium and phosphorus metabolism in growing pigs and broilers using modeling and meta-analysis approaches. I then completed a post-doctoral internship on precision feeding in pigs at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. I then builds a research chair with several partners on Alternative feeding strategies in pig and poultry in a context of sustainability in Laval University where I now holds an associate Professor position. My main research focus is on producing sustainable animal protein especially optimizing the utilization of P and N in pig and poultry by understanding and quantifying the impact of factors related to the diet and to the animal through animal trial, meta-analysis and modelling to help formulating eco-friendly, healthier, and low-cost diet. I am recently held a Canada Research Chair Tier 2 on Production of sustainable animal protein.
