Elodie Ruelle

Research Officer - Grass Growth Modelling

Research Interests

  • Simulating biological system using mechanistic models.
  • Predicting grass growth in real time on commercial farms.
  • Better understanding of the interaction between soil, grass management, the animals and grass growth.
  • Improving N use efficiency and reducing N leaching.
  • Predicting animal intake at grazing.

Current Projects

  • Live grass growth prediction using the MoSt model.
  • Predicting N leaching a N use efficiency of different system and management.
  • Model development (PBHDM and MoSt models).

Education

PhD in Agriculture and food science University College Dublin Master and agronomic engineer degree in modelling of biologic system from the University of Rennes 1 and Agrocampus-Ouest.
