Autobiography: With a background in Ecology and Evolution, I graduated with a degree in Ecological Systems Modelling from the Université Paul Sabatier in Toulouse (France). During my masters’ thesis at the University of Adelaide (South Australia), I studied the self-organised collective motion in locusts. Using parallel computing, I unveiled lower-level interactions responsible for the emergence and maintain of marching hopper bands patterns.

Research interests: I followed this strong interest in complex systems modelling in Ecology starting a PhD in the STI-CS group of the University of Stirling (Scotland). Currently working on the management strategy evaluation software GMSE, my main research goal is to develop the decision-making modelling part. I aim at allowing this artificial intelligence to consider different kind of interactions with other stakeholders, based on observations from actual cases of conservation conflicts.
