Educational and work
I am an ecologist at Cirad (http://www.cirad.fr), a French research center working with developing countries to tackle environmental and development issues. I am conducting researches in community ecology, conservation biology and applied statistics (https://ghislainv.github.io). Currently, I coordinate the BioSceneMada project (http://bioscenemada.cirad.fr) which aims at modeling biodiversity scenarios under both the effect of climate change and anthropogenic deforestation in Madagascar.
