Welcome to the CEFE

The CEFE is currently the largest French research center in Ecology and Evolutionary Ecology. Our Mission: perform independent, fundamental scientific research on the dynamics of biodiversity, planetary environmental change, and sustainable development. The links between society and ecology is a theme of increasing importance in oour research.

If you are interested in who does what on a specific theme or topic at CEFE, please go to the WHO DOES WHAT tab and use the proposed tags. You will have direct access to the pages of the persons listed for a given tag.

If you are interested in what the different research Departments at cefe do and the focus of their respective teams, please go to the RESEARCH tab and navigate the Departments and their teams.

I am an evolutionary and behavioural ecologist broadly interested in understanding the causes and consequences of phenotypic variation in behaviour, life-history and physiology across different hierarchical levels of organization. In my current postdoc with Anne Charmantier and Sandra Bouwhuis I focus on the evolutionary genetics of phenotypic plasticity using a long-term data set of common terns (Sterna hirundo) from the North Coast of Germany.
