Dr Tiphaine Jeanniard du Dot


I am a Research Scientist at Centre d'Etudes Biologiques de Chizé, CNRS - La Rochelle Université (UMR 7372), France.

I specialize in behavioural ecology and environmental physiology of marine top predators, such as marine mammals and seabirds. I seek to understand how environmental changes impact foraging ecology, energetics and fitness of free-ranging animals in a management and conservation context. I use a multidisciplinary approach based on field-based data, on state-of-the-art biologging and biotelemetry tools, and on advances analytical and modelling methods to my research.
