Francois Rebaudo works at the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD) as a modeler at the interface between disciplines (ecology, agronomy, genetics and social sciences). He is interested in the relationship between temperature and insect performances in heterogeneous landscapes, with a modelling approach using agent- and individual-based models to explore the complexity of social-ecological systems.
