“My approach… will combine scientific research with sensitive creation, moving away from the strictly geographical in order to focus on the history of the places.”

I am an architect, I have a doctorate in aesthetics, and I teach urban planning. The making of the contemporary city, urban design, agriculture in the city or the notion of landscape are all themes that I address in my research work. As a project manager in a landscaping and urban planning agency,  I am involved with the Ministry of Ecology and invest in public space development initiatives, from the planning stage to the construction stage. All these commitments are driven by the same ambition: to cross disciplines and methods to renew approaches to nature in urban worlds and rethink the link between Man and nature.


In our Anthropocene age, I would like to analyze forms of urban ecology sensitively from a pluralistic perspective. This means initiating a dialogue between artists, urban planners, and landscape gardeners, as well as building bridges between research and creation, between sciences and sensitivity, between ecology and urban development.

Pacte is a social sciences research centre affiliated to France National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), Grenoble Alpes University (UGA) and the Grenoble Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po Grenoble). Its members are committed to building common languages and horizontal knowledge on the changes underway in society, and their political, territorial, sociological and ecological implications. Interdisciplinarity is central to its practice, through sharing and confronting methods, epistemologies and common fieldwork. Pacte brings together the majority of Grenoble’s researchers in geography, urban planning and territorial development, on the one hand, political science and sociology on the other, together with hosting several economists, historians, and specialists in information and communication sciences.
