A Biologist and database manager with research experience in behavioural ecology and zoology and applied experience in wildlife and natural resources management. I have 10 years of fieldwork experience (population and invasive species monitoring, behavioural observations, capture-mark-recapture and radiotracking), 5 years of experience as research project manager, and 8 years of experience in data curation and database design.
I have specialised in the last 8 years in biocuration, database design and research data management, especially using PostgreSQL, first working for the French ONCFS Institute, then for the international data sharing project EURODEER. In SEACAMS I am developing and curating a relational databases system to manage all main current and past research data produced by the group, from biologging data to fish abundance and morphological data, from benthos and sediment to acoustic data, from seabird behaviour to seagrass monitoring.
With both a research and a data management background, my interest is in finding researcher-focused solutions to efficient data management practices to facilitate data sharing and collaborations, multi-project data collation, data re-use, and enable proper open data standards.
