ROBIN FAILLETTAZPost-Doctoral Researcher
University of Miami
Robin did his PhD at the University Pierre et Marie Curie, in the Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche-sur-Mer located on the French Riviera, on the description of the distribution, settlement and behavior of larval fishes in this region using both lab experiments, in situ observations and modeling. After his PhD, he travelled for a year, then moved to northern France for a first postdoc at the University of Lille where he studied the influence of the climatic variability on biodiversity in the North Sea over the last century.
In RSMAS, Robin will combine closely the empirical data collected on mahi-mahi embryos, larvae and adults during the projects RECOVER1 & 2, in order to perform biophysical modeling of the impact of oil and UV light on the dispersal of the early life stages of the species.
