Aurélie Coulon, research and teaching in spatial ecology



!!! May 2023: Cécile Albert and myself are looking for a post-doctoral researcher. He/she will use landscape genetics on red squirrels to investigate the relative effects of habitat amount and fragmentation on gene flow. See more here. Deadline for applying: June 16th!

2014-2016: Mathew Vickers: Mat used an experimental approach to investigate inter-individual variability in dispersal in grass snakes. He is now working in a different field, but still close to nature...

PhD students:

2022 - ...: Victor Chauveau (co-supervised with Anne Loison, Pascal Marchand, Mathieu Garel, Carole Toïgo): Victor works on the phenology and environmental determinants of partial migration in Alpine ibex.

2018 - 2022: Laura Benoit (co-supervised with Nicolas Morellet and Mark Hewison): Laura investigated the risk-resource trade-offs performed by roe deer at key life stages (dispersal, reproduction).

2016 - 2020: Nicolas Lazzerini (co-directors Antoine Zazzo, Sébastien Lepetz): Nicolas worked on a multi-discplinary project combining archeology, isotopical geochemistry and ecology. He investigated the relevance and reliability of stable isotopes to infer past herding practices in Mongolia.

2016 - 2020: Delphine Ducros (co-supervised with Mark Hewison): Delphine worked on the effects of global changes on dispersal costs in roe deer. She is now a post-doctoral associate at the Tour du Valat.

2015 - 2018: Charlotte Roemer (co-supervised with Romain Julliard and Yves Bas): Charlotte used 3D trajectometry approaches to infer bat movements, to as to investigate collision risks with wind turbins and cars. She is now a post-doctoral associate at the CESCO (MNHN).

2012 - 2016: Roslyn Henry (main supervisor: Justin Travis): Roslyn used spatially explicit individual-based models to theoretically investigate the effect of global changes on dispersal evolution. She is now a post-doctoral associate at the University of Edinburgh.

2011 - 2014: Théo Flavenot (co-supervisor: Michel Baguette): Théo used a landscape genetics approach to investigate the effects of quarries on landscape connectivity, through the examples of two toad species with contrasted ecological requirements (the Natterjack toad and the common toad). Théo now works as a project manager in an ecological consultancy company.
