I am a researcher with the CNRS at the Institut des Sciences de l'Évolution, Université de Montpellier, France.

My current research investigates how individuals access information to make decisions. In particular, I study how individuals use their social environment to access information, and how their phenotype, their individual characteristics, may limit their use of that information.

How empirical sciences may improve livestock welfare and help their management

In their article, Sosa and colleagues [1] first propose to evaluate the effects of individual characteristics on dyadic social relationships and on the social dynamics of four groups of cattle. Using network analyses, the authors provide an interesting and complete picture of dyadic interactio...
