Baptiste is a quantitative ecologist and applied statistician with a specific interest in spatio-temporal modeling and applications in fisheries science and marine ecology. During his PhD, Baptiste developed statistical hierarchical models combining commercial catch declarations data and scientific survey data to infer fish spatio-temporal distribution and identify their essential habitats. Specifically, he developed methods to account for preferential sampling of commercial data and difference of spatial resolution between distinct data sources (change of support issues).
Since January 2023, Baptiste is a post-doc fellow at the University of Washington (Seattle, USA) to develop spatio-temporal population dynamics models to project and address the effect of climate change on harvested population with a specific focus on the Snow Crab of the Bering Sea.
