Tiger bush near Batama Béri, Niger


I am a postdoctoral fellow of UCLA and IITA. I am currently based at the Congo Basin Institute, Yaounde, Cameroon .

My research focuses on how vegetation react to changing climate and human pressure. How resilient is-it? Can it recover? These questions are particularly relevant in arid to semi-arid vegetation, at the border of every hot desert, which are susceptible to desertification. It is also a central question in rainforest where past and future climatic fluctuations are deemed to be the main driver a species geographical distribution.
