Professor of wildlife ecology at the Forestry, Geography and Geomatics Faculty of Université Laval, Québec. Obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Biology at Laval, a M Sc at the University of Alberta (Zoology), and a Ph D at the University of Cambridge, UK (Zoology). Most of my current research is on the behavioral, population, and evolutionary responses of songbirds and small mammals to natural and man-made changes in forest ecosystems. In the last 20 years, I have been at the forefront of research on the effects of habitat loss and fragmentation, on wildlife. I have also been involved in the conservation and restoration of wildlife in peatlands in Eastern Canada. I have strong ties with amateur ornithological societies owing to my interest in citizen science and large, complex datasets. My work has led to ca. 100 scientific peer-reviewed publications.
