Agronomy Consultant, B.C. Centre for Agritech Innovation, Simon Fraser University

I hold a Ph.D. in life sciences specialized in plant breeding and a master's degree in biology from Paris University (France).

I have worked as a scientific consultant for the biotechnology, agri-food and natural health products industries for more than 20 years. My consulting company provides technical expertise, research, grant writing and training services to Canadian SMEs. Over the years, I have developed strong ties with BC companies, government agencies and post-secondary institutions and made significant contributions towards innovative technology adoption, sustainable management practices, market competitiveness and productivity. Additionally, my knowledge of manufacturing and regulatory affairs further strengthens my ability to drive innovation and ensure compliance with industry standards.

I just finished a one-year term position as the Director Innovation and Technology at Simon Fraser University. I had the opportunity to work closely with SFU’s Partnership Hub team and support its effort to launch the BC Centre for Agritech Innovation program by providing scientific expertise and connecting them with key stakeholders.

From 2020 to 2022, I oversaw the creation of an Agritech undergraduate program at SFU.I am driven by a passion for addressing the environmental impact of climate change on agriculture, and I am committed to exploring diverse adaptation strategies and collaborating with researchers, companies, and farmers to promote a more sustainable agri-food system. Additionally, I am dedicated to support the integration of First Nations' traditional knowledge to enhance local food production in remote regions. My goal is to contribute positively to society, the environment, and sustainable food production.
