Thèmes de recherche

Trained in Biology, Ecology and Behavioral Ecology, my main research theme is conservation behavior, in other words how the study of animal behavior can support and contribute to Conservation Biology.


My PhD "Spatial analysis of depredation on livestock by a large carnivore: the brown bear, Ursus arctos, in the Pyrenees and in the Alps" focuses on studying damage events on livestock, which are one of the main limiting factors for the acceptation of large carnivores worldwide. Brown bear-human cohabitation issues, particularly economically such as pastoral activity, are of first order for social acceptance of this species and therefore for its conservation and management, especially in Europe where anthropogenic interactions are numerous.

This PhD aims to go beyond the primary vulnerability analysis of pastoral areas and to undertake a spatially explicit study at different spatial (landscape, individual home range) and temporal scales (intra- and inter-annual variations).

This topic fits in the growing field of movement ecology and particularly in the field of spatial risk modelling. The former is used as a method to identify priority zones of high risk of predation in order to maximise the efficiency and to minimize mitigation costs.
