It is not very unusual to say that as a scientist, I am fascinated by diverse aspects of nature. I enjoy spending my time trying to understand some of these aspects, putting together some pieces of a giant puzzle that people tackle from different perspectives.
I like to think of science as a life-scale hiking process,
scientists dropping stones of variable sizes on hiking trail cairns,
lightning a way to explore ; sometime crashing the whole structure above a critical threshold as Bak's sandpiles or simply kicking an existing cairn that had lead them back to the parking.
I would be satisfied in my scientific life following a path that would lead me somewhere nice, eventually dropping some stones on the journey.
To be a little more specific,
I have a background in Oceanography and (theoretical) Ecology.
I studied the ecology and evolution of food webs, and their fragility to various perturbations.
Apart from science, I dedicate my time to the outdoors.
In sport I like verticality, as I spent a few years doing freediving, experiencing some (more or less) nice feelings before to get (back) into climbing.
I like the aesthetic of movement that characterizes both of these sports, and the pleasure that goes with this optimal gesture.
I also enjoy gardening, and the process of trying to provide local food to relatives.
