Fisheries and Aquatic Ecology



    Improving knowledge on Stocks and Ecosystems :
    • European project coordination : DEMERSTEM EU project aims to improve knowledge on Demersal stocks and Ecosystems in West Africa
    • I am involved in the Fisheries Information System for UEMOA : we want to promote and develop a common framework for Fisheries Informations System (Maritime or Inland Fisheries) for the UEMOA eight countries

  • Information System expert: I support projects by setting up, populating, and disseminating fisheries databases and knowledge on Stocks and Ecosystems.
  • Software developer: To manage fisheries information systems, I develop database-linked websites to enable users to access the data provided by projects. I regularly implement online atlas to disseminate an organised view of the data I manage. I am also involved in the development of the popular Ecopath software for ecosystem modelling.

Teaching Experience

I teach students courses on Geographic Information Systems and data management to elaborate maps with softwares such as R or Qgis; Masters degree in fisheries sciences.
I teach scientists to use spatial database potential. The use of the Postgis extension of Postgres to fisheries supports these courses. (IFREMER, INRAE, IRD, etc.).
