I received the M.S. degree in Remote Sensing and GIS applied to environmental sciences from the Denis Diderot University, Paris, France, in 2006 and the PhD degree in Environmental sciences from the Pierre et Marie Curie University (Paris, France) in 2010.
My thesis is mainly focused on the remote sensing soil moisture products evaluation. An inter-comparison of products based on microwaves measurements is conducted over Sahelian area in Mali. This study was in the context of SMOS (Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity) space mission and AMMA (African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses) program.
I am involved in the SMOS project since 2006. I am actively participating to SMOS calibration and validation activities and I conduct a satellite soil moisture products inter-comparison projects (ASCAT, TMI and AMSR-E products). I took part of different field campaigns in Mali (AMMA-CATCH) and Australia (AACES) and I am in charge of the SMOS blog.
I am also interested on the monitoring of environment and natural hazard. I was monitoring flood events with SMOS data (Pakistan and Australia). I participated to mapping affected area by the tsunami of December 26, 2004 over Sumatra coasts based on radar and optical remote sensing images in the context of work experience at GéoSciences Consultants and Tsunarisque project. I regularly give courses on natural hazards and their prevention.
