I'm broadly interested in the general mechanisms leading to the emergence and persistence of biodiversity at the ecological and macro-ecological scale. My research aims at predicting ecosystem resilience to perturbations in spatially structured systems to improve environmental decision-making. I combine theoretical modelling, data analysis and microcosm experiments to achieve this goal.
Currently, I combine theory and experiments on microbial communities to address the short and long-term effects of environmental disturbances on ecosystem structure (see Jacquet et al. (2020), Jacquet & Altermatt (2020)).
I have extensive experience and skills in analyzing the dynamics and stability of complex ecological systems and combining theory with the analysis of large empirical datasets (see for example Jacquet et al. (2016); Jacquet et al. (2017)).
