Dr Anne Pellegrino is an associate professor in Institut Agro Montpellier.
Anne obtained a PhD in Agronomy/Plant Science in 2003 at Montpellier SupAgro, as it was then named. Then she worked as a researcher at CIRAD (Montpellier) during one year and conducted a research project at CSIRO (Australia) during two years. She has written 20 scientific papers, 3 book chapters and participated in 50 international and national scientific communications. At Institut Agro Montpellier, she is elected member of the IHEV and Associate professors-Professors internal boards. She is also part of the animation cell of the GiESCO (Group of international Experts for Cooperation on Vitivinicultural Systems).
Vinifera Teaching: Anne is the Co-Director (scientific matters) of the Vinifera EuroMaster and coordinates the Ecology and Physiology module. In this module, she gives lectures in ecophysiology and modelling of grapevine responses to environmental constraints (climate, soil). Her focus is on grapevine vegetative and reproductive development, carbon balance and water relationships for the physiology part. She teaches on climatic indexes and soil water balance for the ecology part.
Research Interests: Dr Pellegrino’s principal past research concerned the development of a diagnosis tool to evaluate vineyards water stress based on soil water balance (currently named Vintel, ITK-Montpellier). Secondly, she researched the development of concepts for modelling grapevine yield components in the VineLOGIC model (APSIM, CSIRO). More recently, she addressed the role of C balance in Microvine reproductive development responses to warm temperatures (collab. AGAP, Institut Agro Montpellier). She is now focusing on the modelling of grapevine yield components responses to water and nitrogen constraints (collab. SYSTEM, Institut Agro Montpellier & ITK-Montpellier).
