Dr. Jean-Olivier Irisson

Short Description
Summary Role
I am Maître de Conférences (i.e. Associate Professor) in the Ocean Observatory of Villefranche-sur-Mer, in Southern France. I study physical-biological interactions in the open ocean and, in particular, how the behaviour of the organisms influences those interactions. I have been largely focussing on the larval phase of fish so far, but I am also working on the “planktonic” community as a whole. I use modelling, data collection, and experiments to answer my questions. I teach marine ecology, behavioural ecology, and a lot of statistics.
