I am a postdoc researcher. During my PhD (2014-2017), I studied fish and fisheries monitoring indicators in four Tunisian MPAs. Working on Mediterranean small scale fishing made me notice that few attention was given to socio-economic aspects of these fisheries. That is why, my research interests are now focused on social and economic aspects of fishing in the Mediterranean Sea.
My postdoc is a part of the CLIM-ECO2 project (http://ecoseas.unice.fr/index.php/research/en-cours/174-clim-eco), led by Virginie Raybaud and funded by the "Fondation Albert II de Monaco". During this time, I will try to assess the economic effects of climate change on Mediterranean fisheries, based on ecological effects provided by species distribution modelling.
