Ecology of marine mammals from the Arctic to the Antarctic
I specialize in behavioural ecology and environmental physiology of marine top predators, mainly marine mammals such as phocids and otarids. My research focuses on the interactions between environmental parameters – and their changes -, and foraging ecology, bioenergetics, survival and reproductive success of free-ranging animals. I use a multidisciplinary approach ecology / biology / ecophysiology, with a strong focus on technological or methodological innovations in the field of biologging and biotelemetry as well as mathematical or statistical modelling. I work on species at all latitudes but focus on Arctic and Antarctic polar marine ecosystems. Ultimately, I seek to understand and characterize how climate change affects these wild species in a wider context of management and conservation of marine ecosystems.
