Thesis project: Machine Learning for biodiversity monitoring.
The objective of the thesis is to harness a combination of machine learning approaches to support the development of a fast data pipeline that transforms eDNA metabarcoding data into ecological indicators for ecosystem monitoring. I will develop machine learning to improve the identification of the taxonomic composition of eDNA samples and to link eDNA composition to ecological indicators. Approaches are going to be developed from two case studies: freshwater fishes from French Guyana. This thesis is part of Artificial Intelligence for the Sciences (AI4theSciences) doctoral program run by Université PSL.
