Teaches – Advances in Spatial Analysis of Multivariate Ecological Data: Theory and Practice
Olivier is an associate professor in biology at Université de Bretagne Occidentale. He is a quantitative ecologist interested in describing and explaining spatial and temporal community diversity patterns and in the numerical tools needed to so. He primarily works with marine benthic ecologists. His research aims to better understand how local, regional and habitat-dependant variables can constraint taxonomic and functional diversity of marine macrobenthos. He teaches biostatistics and numerical ecology and regularly gives international short courses on the analysis of biological diversity data.
