• About me


I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the lab Evolution et Diversité Biologique, Toulouse, France.

My research mainly focuses in analysing freshwter fish population time series using various statistical approaches to determine whether climate change, especially temperature, can explain population size fluctuations. I particularly try to identify the underlying determinants of population dynamics by studying the mechanisms through which climate change might influence population size (e.g. through the modification of the population growth rate or of the strength of density dependence) and by relating interspecific differences in population dynamics to species-specific characteristics.

Keywords: Biodiversity; Population dynamics; Climate change; Bayesian inference; Freshwater ecosystems; Stream fish
