Biography

After completing his Master's degree in Agro-Ecology and Environmental Science at the French Ecole Nationale Agronomique de Toulouse, Yvan worked as a field biologist in seabird conservation for several years, in Europe and the USA. He is currently a Research Specialist at the SC Coop Unit, working on the spatial ecology of seabirds of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.
