hi, I'm lucille!

I enjoy the multidisciplinary aspect of my work, making it inherently collaborative. With a strong background in behavioural and evolutionary ecology, I am broadening my horizons to include cutting edge technology at the frontier of different fields, such as biomechanics, 3D bioimaging and artificial intelligence. I believe that an integrative approach to science can challenge unsolved fundamental biological questions.

Originally from Switzerland, I have always been fascinated by the ocean and inspired by its wonders . 

I have a soft spot for tiny creatures like cleaner shrimps, and for bigger things like sharks. While my Msc thesis focused on mutualism in the former, my PhD investigated the acoustic ecology of sharks. Since then, I have been interested in underwater sound and concerned about the effect of the ever increasing human-made noise in aquatic environments. 

I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow, hosted by The University of Bristol in the UK and The University of Auckland in New Zealand.

After obtaining a BSc and MSc in Evolutionary Biology and Conservation from the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, I completed a PhD in Neuroecology at the University of Western Australia. As a sensory ecologist, I aim to understand how aquatic organisms sense and adapt to their everchanging environment.
