Back to France

January will bring a short scientific mission to France, the ever beautiful country of old cities and amazing culture, and recently taking a prominent spot in global news.

Pictures from Meaux, a city close to Paris.

I will head to Amiens, in the north of the country, where I will visit a colleague. He is a specialist in species distribution modelling, the models that will be the main focus of the second half of my PhD.

There are some tricks and rules I really need to learn before I feel confident enough to play a role in this part of ecology, and he is the best guide I could imagine.

There is some big stories to tell about plant invasions in the mountains, and I am lucky enough to have access to exactly the dataset suited to tell these stories, and the help of people who have experience in telling such stories.
