Objectives and interests
As a forest ecologist, I am interested in the impacts of forest management and upcoming drivers (e.g. energy wood harvesting, neobiota) on forest biodiversity. I am particularly dedicated to insects dependent on dead wood and old growth trees, and to the functions of this insect group in forest ecosystems. With more than 10 years of work experience at the interface between research, policy and managers, I am seeking to develop research projects connecting forest management and biodiversity conservation. My main objectives are to better understand patterns in forest biodiversity from local to continental scale and to provide scientific baselines to integrate biodiversity conservation into forest management.
