Thèmes de Recherche.
I am an animal ecologist, working as a postdoc at LIENSs under the supervision of Paco Bustamante and Jérôme Fort. My project DeToxSea, funded by the European Commission (Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions) from 2021 to 2023 aims at evaluating the demographic effects of mercury-selenium toxic contamination on Arctic wildlife, more specifically in little auks.

Previously, I did my PhD at the University of Barcelona (Spain) where I carried out a multidisciplinary thesis that comprised population, spatial and trophic ecology with expertise in seabirds, developing a solid background in animal ecology. During these years, I was involved in different collaborative projects, mainly related to the use of spatial analysis for the conservation of seabirds.
