MSc. Samuel Dijoux
Job Position: PhD Student - Laboratory of Ecology of Aquatic Insects and Relict Ecosystems
Ph.D Study - Trait-based models of the dynamics of invertebrate communities in freshwaters
PhD project dedicated to the role of life-history and physiological traits on communities in small standing waters. Using mainly theoretical approaches, mathematical models will be developped to investigate the effets of climate change on freshwaters biota.
A special focus is given to individual-based approaches (age- and size-structured populations models, bioenergetic models) to link individual responses to environment change (warming, enrichment, increase of harvesting efforts, etc.) at the community level.
Interested research areas:
Population dynamics & Life history traits evolution ; Ecological modelling ; Climate change impacts ; Food webs interactions
