Research interests
I am particularly interested in investigating the migration patterns of different pelagic fish species throughout their life-cycles (larvae, juveniles, spawning adults), and how this behaviour is influenced by oceanographic conditions. For my research, I am employing (geo-)statistical (e.g. GLM,GAM, kriging) and biophysical models, using direct observational techniques, remote sensing, distance sampling and archival tagging to collect the required data.

MARBEC MARine Biodiversity, Exploitation and Conservation, est une unité de recherche qui regroupe des personnels de 4 organismes : l’IRD, l’Ifremer, l’UM et le CNRS. Son objectif est l’étude de la biodiversité marine des écosystèmes lagunaires, côtiers et hauturiers à différents niveaux d’intégration, depuis les aspects moléculaires, individuels, populationnels et communautaires, et des usages de cette biodiversité par l’Homme.
