1/ Prof. Dr.Bernard Tychon

 Liege university, Belgium

Bernard TYCHON, agronomist and PhD in Environmental Sciences is Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Management of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Liège. Since 2017, he is also director of the SPHERES Research Unit that includes 140 researchers.

For 22 years, he has been leading a research group in Agrometeorology. Topics studied in his group concern the relationship between agriculture and the physical environment. More specifically, the main activities are related to the needs and requirements of water, radiation and temperature of crops and their associated diseases, at different latitudes, to predict the levels of agricultural production.

In particular, his research group contributed to the establishment of crop yield forecasting tools, operational warning systems for cereal diseases and integrated water management tools in different countries. In addition to the international trainings he has conducted on these tools, B. Tychon recently created a spin-off in precision farming.

He is a lecturer in agrometeorology, data processing and modeling, remote sensing and geographic information systems and diffuse pollution. He has published more than 250 scientific papers (books, research reports, conference proceedings, national and international scientific journals).

Francesca De Filippis is a microbial ecologist with a background in Food Science. Her research interests span from food microbiology to the inter-connections among diet-human microbiome-health. She is expert in the study of microbial ecology in complex environments through the application of metagenomics and metatranscriptomics and in bioinformatics and biostatistics applied to high-throughput sequencing data.

She got the PhD in Food Science at the Department of Agricultural Sciences of the University of Naples Federico II (Italy) in 2015. Afterwards, she was Post-Doctoral researcher (2015-16), Tenure-Track Assistant Professor (2016-2022) and Associate Professor of Food Microbiology in the same institution. She also carried out research activity at APC Microbiome Institute of the University College of Cork (Ireland) and Argonne National Laboratory (USA). She participates as PI or team member into several National and European projects aiming at investigating microbial dynamics during food fermentation or spoilage. She is member of the Managing Board of the Task Force on Microbiome Studies of the University of Naples Federico II and member of the Board of Professors of the PhD School in Food Science. Her research activity is condensed in > 90 international publications since 2012, with an H-index of 40 and > 5,000 total citations (source: Scopus).
