Research interests : As microbial ecologist and ecotoxicologist, my previous research was focused on the interactions between microorganisms and organic pollutants in different environments (deep-storage aquifer, agricultural soil, streams) and at different scales. I am now studying microbial interactions between fungal plant pathogens, mycotoxins and the plant-associated bacteria
