Project

Un réseau d’infrastructures vertes multifonctionnelles pour les éspaces urbains
Bronwyn est une écologiste paysagiste qui a une formation en statistique et en environnemétrie de l’Université de Guelph et un doctorat en écologie spatiale de l’Université de Toronto. Sa recherche couvre la modélisation du paysage, la conservation de la biodiversité, l’analyse spatiale, et l’analyse des habitats en réseaux. Ses collaborations avec Jérôme portent sur le développement d’un cadre d’infrastructure verte et son application en milieu urbain afin d’assurer la préservation des services d’écosystèmes et de la biodiversité face aux changements climatiques.
