Overview

I am a biologist that is passionate about the Ocean and marine predators. I'm drawn towards sharks, especially to juvenile shark, their ecology and conservation.   

My research interests

For my PhD project I've been investigating the coexistence of two juvenile shark species and the possible effects of competition on the species' ecological niches. This work has been conducted in Seychelles and French Polynesia through a collaboration with the EPHE, the CRIOBE and the Save Our Seas Foundation - D'Arros Research Centre (SOSF - DRC).

See publication list for findings.

I'm further involved in multiple international collaborations investigating the trophic ecology and anthropogenic impacts on the ecology and physiology of sharks. This research takes place in Southern Florida in collaboration with the American Shark Conservancy and in the Gulf of Mexico with Texas A&M University at Galveston.

The research I've been conducting is possible due to a range of collaborations with great partner organizations  around the world.
