Thibaut -

I'm a French-Malian electrical engineer. After realizing my interests lie in other fields, I decided to study agriculture in the Netherlands. I am particularly interested in the "underrated" actors of the global food system : seaweed, fungi, bacteria... and how they can help solve our current problems without relying on technology.

As an aquaponics intern I'm researching how Mediamatic can grow its own fish food in the form of duckweed. This would bring the greenhouse's system one step closer to circularity.
