Research interests

  • Conservation sciences and ecosystem functioning 
  • Scaling issues in spatio-temporal variations of biodiversity
  • Quantitative, spatial and landscape ecology
  • Community and population ecology
  • Multi-taxa, multi-factorial, multi-scale and spatio-temporal-explicit approaches of environment-biodiversity relationships
  • Numerical ecology / statistics and modelling
  • Functional ecology
  • Macro-ecology

Technical and analytical skills

  • Naturalist (amphibians), field work (pond survey), water measurements, team management, student supervision
  • Dialog with stakeholders
  • Handling large datasets of various taxa (birds, amphibians, macro-invertebrates, orthoptera, butterflies, plants), and environmental characteristics (e.g. landscape structural and compositional characteristics, abiotic/climatic conditions, water analyses) 
  • Spatial explicit statistical approaches (parametric/non-parametric, univariate/multivariate, frequentist/Bayesian)
  • Taxonomic and functional biodiversity
  • Model of biodiversity-environment relationships (population and community levels), model occupancy
  • Spatio-temporal patterns of biodiversity and links with processes
  • Trend analyses
  • GIS processing
  • Connectivity analyses
