Currently, I’m in third year of PhD at the Ecole de Ponts ParisTech under the supervision of Ioulia TCHIGUIRINSKAIA, and the co-direction of Pierre-Antoine VERSIN (HM&Co) and Olivier BONIN (LVMT). My research aims to explore the feasibility of Nature-Based Solutions implementation through different urban scales, based on their thermo-hydric performance (mainly the evapotranspiration). This thesis is conducted in the frame of EVNATURB project, to assess the ecosystems services of nature within cities.
