    I'm French, born (in 1985) and raised in Grenoble, Isere. I've always loved nature and wildlife and completely fell in love with Africa during a trip to Namibia in 1999. Since then, I walked towards my dream: working and living there!
    I am now conducting research in South Africa on carnivore behavioural and spatial ecology and their inter-specific interactions.
