Concerns about the influence of global changes on biodiversity need to investigate the mechanisms underlying changes in species range distributions and population sizes at large temporal and spatial scales. As a conservation biologist (PhD in Ecology at Pierre & Marie Curie University, Paris), these issues are part of my main interests. My work focuses on understanding how macro-ecological processes drive spatial dynamic patterns of populations and communities.
I am a bird watcher and a bird ringer, so I am very interested in the ecology of birds, particularly in the European context. In my last two postdoctoral positions, I have worked on the French Breeding Bird survey (FBBS) database. Currently, I examine which indicators are relevant for assessing the effect of connectivity on bird communities and how to find the best approach to downscale abundance indicators, from national to regional scale.
