Professeur Universitaire - ULCO - UCEIV - FRANCE

Prof. Anissa Lounès – Hadj Sahraoui works at Université du Littoral Côte d’Opale, Calais, France. She is the research team leader of « Plant-fungi interactions and Remediation » laboratory at Environmental Chemistry and Interactions on the Living Unit. She conducts researches on the phytomanagement of aged contaminated soils and on the biocontrol of plant diseases. Her researches cover the use of Plant Growth Promoting Microbes (PGPM) potential, in particular arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), in both soil remediation and biomass valorisation through integrated approaches, and in the protection of plants against abiotic (pollution, drought, salinity) or biotic (phytopathogenic fungi of cereals) environmental stresses. She develops new channels for valorising biomass produced on polluted soils (such as essential oil production from aromatic plants) and studies the influence of phytotechnologies on soil risk assessment and refunctionalisation through microbiome analysis. Her works, referred both to basic and applied aspects, are led from the laboratory scale to field. Her investigations aims at a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in phytoremediation and in plant defense by using cytological, biochemical and molecular approaches. She supervised more than 16 PhD students, 25 Master students and 6 post-doctoral fellows. She has now more than 90 scientific publications in international journals listed in ORCID, with a total of 2578 citations and an h-factor of 28.
