Skill area

Supervision

I am currently coordinating the PAN-Bioptique project “emerging biodiversity institutions: Make an inventory, digitise and assess nature” (https://pan-bioptique.cemagref.fr), funded by the ANR (French national research agency).

I am responsible for the "Risks of Expertise" master's course at the IEP of Grenoble (Institute of Political Sciences).

I have contributed to the supervision of the thesis by Antoine Dore, “Wolves in the City. Elements of pragmatic ecology” (viva held on 04 July 2010 at the Institute of Political Sciences Paris). I am also supervising two other doctorate students (Arnaud Cosson, working on the reform of national parks, and Clémence Massart, working on knowledge production mechanisms surrounding Lyme's Disease) as well as a post-doctoral researcher², Michel Daccache, funded by PAN-Bioptique.

Since 2005, I have supervised 7 master’s students doing sociology of the environment and sociology of sciences courses.
