About me

I am a French student working about ecological modelling, applied in Southern Ocean case studies. The aim of my thesis is to study the sensitivity of benthic species to environmental changes through different modelling methodologies that describe species ecological niches.
I use, study and combine several approaches such as Species Distribution Models (SDM), Dynamic Energy Budget models (DEB) and ecosystemic models.
