Danaï Symeonidou, weaving a web of knowledge
Danaï Symeonidou is part of the Joint Research Unit for Mathematics, Informatics, and Statistics for the Environment and Agronomy (MISTEA) at the INRA centre of Occitanie-Montpellier. She studies artificial intelligence, and she is an expert "weaver"...of the Semantic Web. She views informatics as a discipline that builds connections, creates understanding, and diffuses knowledge. It is also a field that has allowed her to pursue her two passions: research and education. She is an excellent teacher, and her curiosity is contagious.
Ana in the land of the little
Like Gulliver, Ana Villares is on an extraordinary journey, making leaps and bounds in a nano-scopic world. From the discovery of physicochemical properties of plant-based polymers in Spain, to their assembly at INRA in Nantes, her story takes us to the heart of her scientific research: design new biobased materials that are reliable and sustainable.
Florian Maumus, evolving with evolution
Faithful to his first name, Florian Maumus loves plants – a passion he explores in his career by combining genetics, genomics and bioinformatics. A research engineer at the Genomics-Informatics Research Unit at INRA’s Île-de-France Versailles-Grignon Research Centre, he is this year’s winner of the Promising Researcher Award. Read on for a portrait of a scientist who loves life.
Yoan Paillet, a forest biodiversity champion
At the Mountain Ecosystem and Society Laboratory (LESSEM) in Grenoble, Yoan Paillet works hand in hand with forest managers to protect and preserve forest biodiversity. An essential task considering that two thirds of the world’s biodiversity depend on forests for their survival.
