Benoit Goussen

My research focuses on the adaptation and on the population dynamics of populations exposed to anthropogenic stressors.

The approaches I use involve experiments and modelling (essentially using a bioenergetic approach).

The purpose of my work is to contribute to increase the knowledge on the ecological and evolutionary effects of pollutants, and to aim to demonstrate how mechanistical modelling can be used to improve environmental risk assessment.
