Expertises de recherche

Les objectifs généraux des travaux en cours dans mon laboratoire sont :

  1. de trouver des solutions aux défis reliés au développement de modèles qui permettent d’expliquer les variations spatiales et temporelles de la qualité des habitats des poissons en lacs et en rivières;
  2. de prédire les effets de perturbations naturelles et anthropiques sur la quantité et la qualité des habitats des poissons.

Research interest

The general objectives of my research projects are: 1) to find solutions to the challenges associated with the development of models capable to predict the spatial and temporal variations of habitat quality in lakes and rivers, and; 2) to predict the effects of natural and anthropogenic perturbations on fish habitat quality.
