Short CV of Agnès Calonnec
Agnès Calonnec is a research scientist in Plant Pathology at the “Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique” (INRA) in the unit “Santé Végétale” in Bordeaux (France). She is an epidemiologist working since 1997 on spatio-temporal disease progression mostly on powdery mildew of grapevine. She is closely working with mathematicians to develop statistical and deterministic models to characterise disease progression and to grade factors favourable to it. Since 2003, her major research area concerns the use of host development and grapevine conduct to decrease the risk of disease invasion. Her unit is working mainly on grapevine diseases and pests with four main groups dealing with population genetics, epidemiology and insect dynamics, IPM, and extension products.
Agnès Calonnec joined the IOBC WG "Integrated Protection in Viticulture" in 1999 and participate to the "International Powdery and Downy mildew Workshop" since 1998.
