Dr Patrick Bergeron est un professeur adjoint dans le département des sciences biologiques. Il a reçu un baccalauréat en biologie de la faune sauvage à McGill et son doctorat en biologie évolutive et en écologie comportementale à l’Université de Sherbrooke. Il était aussi boursier postdoctoral en génétique des populations à Dartmouth College (NH) et en biostatistiques et épidémiologie au CRCHUS. Il collabore maintenant avec des chercheurs dans le département de biologie et dans la faculté de médecine et des sciences de la santé à l’Université de Sherbrooke. Ses champs de recherche principaux sont les arbitrages dans le sauvage et l’épidémiologie sur les grands ensembles de données humaines.
