Claire Jacquet

Postdoctoral researcher

I am a theoretical ecologist broadly interested in the general mechanisms leading to the emergence and persistence of biodiversity at the ecological and macro-ecological scale. My research aims at predicting ecosystem resilience to perturbations in spatially structured systems to improve conservation decision-making.

I am currently doing a postdoc with Franck Jabot at LISC within the European project H2020 DRYvER – Securing biodiversity, functional integrity and ecosystem services in DRYing rivER networks. I develop metacommunity models to address the effects of drying events on freshwater biodiversity for different spatio-temporal drying scenarios.

Research focus

  • Stability of complex systems
  • Species spatial dynamics
  • Metacommunities
  • Food webs
  • Body mass and metabolic scaling
