Summary of CV:

  • Eric works at the Station Biologique in Roscoff. He studies processes involved in larval dispersal of marine invertebrates and the consequences of dispersal on population dynamics (persistence of isolated populations, the ability of marine species to recolonize sites following disturbances or to respond to global change)
  • Biophysical modelling
  • Responses of coastal benthic communities to natural and anthropogenic disturbances

Experience Higher education:

  • 2006 – present: Assistant Professor, University Pierre & Marie Curie, UMR 7144 (CNRS, UPMC), Station Biologique de Roscoff.
  • 2003 – 2006: Assistant Professor, University Pierre & Marie Curie, UMR 5178 (MNHN, CNRS, UPMC), Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris
  • 1995 – 2002: Assistant Professor, University Pierre & Marie Curie, UMR 7093 (CNRS, UPMC), Paris
