How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

I am a Postdoc researcher in behavioral ecology. After PhD in theoretical ecology on the pollinators foraging behavior, I’m currently working on the Honeybee colony resilience from data field. As a part of BeeConnected project, the purpose of my post-doc is to find early warning signals of winter colony mortality towards a sustainable beekeeping activity.
Pollinator insects forage in complex and unpredictable resource landscapes, often using social information from congeneric individuals to acquire knowledge about their environment. It has long been recognized that this process allows them to exploit floral resources more efficiently and thus increase individual fitness. However, by creating correla...
Plant-pollinator interaction is a strong evolutive force, and bumblebees are model organisms that have shaped much of our current knowledge. Past researches on bumblebees foraging strategies have shown that their efficiency depends on the environmental conditions, like the flower spatial distribution, with bumblebees being able to follow routines w...
Plant viruses strongly influence the physiology of their host plants and phytophagous insect vectors, thereby affecting ecological interactions between them. Despite the important role of natural enemies on insect vector control and thus on virus dissemination, the influence of plant viruses on the third trophic level received little attention. We...
BeeConnected aims to investigate, develop and test new digital solutions based on data collection to deliver early-warning indicators of honey bee colony mortality and decision-support tools to help beekeepers limiting colony losses and related economic deficits. BeeConnected will bring together beekeepers, researchers, electronic engineers, and outreach designers (for transparent communication) in a transdisciplinary, multi-actor approach, to enable digital technology solutions for a transition towards sustainable and resilient beekeeping.
The aim of this PhD project is to develop an Individual-Based Model to examine how the diversity and the spatiotemporal distribution of the resources affect the efficiency of pollinator foraging strategies, in particular, the type of information using (eg. private versus public information).
