Research engineer in agronomy and rural development at CIRAD, I am specialized in the design of tropical aquaculture systems. The main research object is the design of the integrated multi-trophic aquaculture system. This work is carried out using methods inspired by the approach of coactive search for solutions (1). My current mission is to lead the research work of the family commercial fish farming development project in Guinea Conakry (2), a project implemented by the APDRA Pisciculture Paysanne (3).
We work jointly in groups made up of actors in the development of peasant fish farming (technicians, producers and researchers) to identify research questions, track down innovative practices, set up the experiments and jointly validate the achievements.
