Soazig Guyomarc'h is a teacher-researcher in plant biology. Captivated by the ability of plants to grow and develop continuously in their environment, she trained as an agricultural engineer, then specialized in research, with a thesis on the development mechanisms of plants at the University of Orsay. After two post-doctoral contracts on the formation of leaves and flowers, in Bern in Switzerland, then in Lyon in France, she joined the University of Montpellier. She teaches Life Sciences students the knowledge acquired and study methods in plant biology and biotechnology. At the same time, with her colleagues at the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, she is conducting research aimed at better understanding the mechanisms by which plants can repeatedly produce new roots, in order to draw resources from the soil by adapting to the constraints of their environment.
