I grew up in a small Mediterranean town in the South of France. My childhood has been rocked by the beauty of nature and marine landscapes, which naturally leads me to undertake education in biology, ecology and environmental management. I decided to nourish my fascination for marine ecosystems by fulfilling a 1 year academic exchange in the Fishery Engineering in the Federal Rural University (UFRPE) of Pernambuco (Recife, Brazil). During this mobility, I studied and completed internship in marine ecology, marine resources management and functional ecology. To complete my French Engineering Diploma (Master's Degree) specialized in Environmental Management, I realized a 6 months internship working on a global-scale assessment of coral reefs accessibility, based on travel time from human settlements.
In 2018 I completed a PhD at the interface between ecology and social science at the University of Montpellier/MARBEC (France) and James Cook University/ARC Centre of Excellence of Coral Reefs Studies (Australia).
After a 1-year lecturer position (ecology and statistics) at the University of Montpellier, I moved to the Lancaster Environment Centre (UK) for a 3-year postdoc.
