Thèmes de recherche

For my phD I'm studying the impact of light pollution on bats and how those impacts can be reduced. As my work is meant to be applied, I'm co-supervised by researchers from the CESCO, Isabelle Le Viol and Christian Kerbiriou, and the head of the biodiversity department from a firm of environmental consultant (Airele), Nicolat Valet.

The main issues I address with my work are :

- How can we  represent  ecological corridors for nocturnal species, i.e. how to take into account the light pollution ? And how can we determine which part of those corridors are of prior concern in terms of conservation ?

- Which parameters of street lighting are the most relevant when considering there impact on bats ? Can we define thresholds for those parameters and implement recommendations for a more bat-friendly lighting ?

- Can we define a global strategy to limit the ecological impacts of artificial light at night at a large scale ?
