Observer Coordinator

Miscellaneous Information

Miscellaneous Information:

I first got involved in Marine Sciences in 2009 as a technician after having obtained a diploma of higher education in Coastal Environment Management from the Universite du Littoral Cote d’Opale (Calais, France). I have spent over a year in Canada, first in Vancouver for an internship at the Vancouver Aquarium, and then in Whitehorse, YT and Saint John’s, NL, where I was working as a Research assistant at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. Back in France, I have been a Fisheries Observer gathering data from gillnetters and trawlers based in Roscoff. I then joined the Ifremer lab of Dinard, Brittany, where I was a field / lab technician for phytoplankton and microbiology monitoring networks. I then completed an MSc (Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes) in 2016 as a work-study contract, which was mainly based on macrobenthic invertebrate communities monitoring (WFD) and research in the Rance estuary, Brittany. In 2017-18, I have been hired by the INRA – French research agricultural institute – to conduct a study on the impacts of a dam removal on the fish nurseries and benthic invertebrate communities of the Selune estuary, Normandy. I started working as a Fisheries Observer Coordinator for the Falkland Islands Fisheries Department in August 2018.
