Born in August 1960, Emmanuel Frossard earned his degree of “ingénieur agronome” (MSc in agricultural sciences) from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Agronomie et des Sciences Alimentaires (ENSAIA) in Nancy (France) in 1983. He obtained his “Thèse de Doctorat” (PhD) in agricultural sciences with mention “très honorable et félicitations du jury” in 1985, also from the ENSAIA. Afterwards, he was funded during two years by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada as a postdoctoral fellow at the Saskatchewan Institute of Pedology in Saskatoon, Canada. In 1988, he became a senior scientist in soil science at the ENSAIA. In 1994, he was elected associate professor of Plant Nutrition in the Institute of Plant Sciences and the Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences of the ETH where he became full professor in 2000.

His work focuses on nutrient cycling in cropping and grassland systems. Together with his Group, he is conducting a process-oriented research at levels ranging from the molecule to the field, to understand drivers controlling nutrient fluxes and to propose integrated nutrient management schemes that will contribute to the development of ecologically efficient agricultural systems both in temperate and tropical environments.
