We study the causes and consequences of biodiversity change. Several key questions motivate what we do:
We recently started a spin-off company (Eco2Urb) that is applying our science to the design of ecological networks for cities, like Montreal.
I also support collaboration and training in biodiversity science via the Quebec Centre for Biodiversity Science, a large research network of 120 researchers and ~500 graduate students, we founded in 2009.
