Why research & marmot?
My interest for research in ecology comes from a fascination I’ve always had for wildlife and the complex way in which it is organized. There is so much to discover!
Similarly, I have always been very sensitive about preserving the natural world and the negative impacts human activities have on biodiversity, such as the increasingly adverse effects of climate change.
The alpine environment is on the forefront of this change, as demonstrated by the various impacts on the alpine marmot, an emblematic keystone species. I find these creatures fascinating because of their social behavior and unique lifestyle. It was a natural progression for me to become involved in the marmot research project.
