PhD student in geography. My researches focus on the coexistence between wildlife and humans. For my PhD I explore these questions with two species (wild boars and common cranes), using qualitative data (semi-structured interviews, participant observation), wildlife datasets collected among diverse stakeholders and serious games in different wetlands with a bigger focus on the Camargue (southern France). From a more epistemological perspective I look at the potential for less human-centred perspectives in geography.
