Bastien Dehaudt

I am originally from France, but I moved to California in 2010. I graduated from UCLA, where I received a degree in ecology and evolutionary biology, with a minor in conservation biology. I am interested in all aspects of ecology, and I have worked on projects with plants, algae, giant clams, soil, and leatherback turtles. I am always trying to expand this list, especially with studies and fieldwork that can benefit conservation. 


During my PhD, I will be focusing my research on the small mammals populating the tropical forests of Southeast Asia. I want to study what determines their density and diversity, and how they affect plant populations through seed predation. I plan on using live-trapping data and camera traps to conduct various analyses. I hope that my findings will contribute to the protection of these unique ecosystems.
