Dr. MARINE RANDON
Climate change, pollutions, overfishing and marine traffic are examples of well-known anthropogenic threats against marine ecosystems. In this context, understanding the spatial ecology of marine species is essential for informing management and conservation. As a marine statistical ecologist, I study marine population structure and connectivity as well as animal movement using statistical and modelling approaches. I work with various data types ranging from natural tracers for fish species (e.g., otolith shape and microchemistry, genetics) to location data for marine mammals (e.g., visual sightings, passive acoustic monitoring). I particularly enjoy learning new quantitative methods and technologies for answering complex scientific questions.
