Introduction
As a behavioral ecologist, I have worked in various field on different species, in the conservation and fundamental research domains. I am primarily interested in great apes’ conservation and think; therefore, that research is a solution to achieve those goals. my focuses are on aspects of sociality, such as social stress, friendships or integration, and their impacts on chimpanzees endocrine mechanisms (oxytocin, glucocorticoid levels) and health (neopterine, Virome).

It has long been recognized that the patterning of social interactions within a group can give rise to a social structure that holds very different places for different individuals. Such within-group variation in sociality correlates with fitness proxies in fish, birds, and mammals. Broader integration of this research has been hampered by the lack...

Glucocorticoids, such as cortisol, mediate homeostatic processes, allowing individuals to adjust to fluctuating environments. The regulation of circadian cortisol responses, a key homeostatic function, has been shown to be heritable. However, to understand better the role of parental care in shaping physiological functioning in long-lived mammals w...

The biological embedding model (BEM) suggests that fitness costs of maternal loss arise when early-life experience embeds long-term alterations to hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity. Alternatively, the adaptive calibration model (ACM) regards physiological changes during ontogeny as short-term adaptations. Both models have been test...

In mammals, early life adversity negatively affects survival and reproductive success. A key causal mechanism is proposed by the biological embedding model which posits that adversity experienced early in life has deleterious consequences on individual physiology across the lifespan. In particular, early life adversity is expected to be a severe st...
Article
Cette étude s’inscrit dans un suivi à long terme des effets d’un contraceptif progestatif sur le comportement reproducteur. Peu de données étant disponibles, un suivi de la reproduction, au préalable de l’implantation, est donc essentiel afin de définir des indicateurs comportementaux. Un échantillonnage par individu focal et un suivi hormonal sont...
Article
Les contraceptifs hormonaux sont des outils très utilisés pour la gestion des populations de primates en parc zoologique, mais leur maîtrise est actuellement une problématique majeure. En effet, leur impact sur les cycles, la santé et le comportement est mal connu, et leur efficacité semble inconstante. Cette étude a pour objet d’établir un protoco...
