FABIEN VIVIER

PhD STUDENT

 

My research interests consist in understanding how natural and anthropogenic processes influence the health of cetacean populations. I am particularly interested in developing research-tools to rapidly monitor the health status of free-ranging cetacean populations. For this, I am using innovative technologies such as Unoccupied Aerial Vehicles. I will use my research outcomes to work closely with agencies to implement new management and conservation strategies for these populations.

Biography

Fabien Vivier is a PhD student in the University of Hawaii at Manoa Marine Biology Graduate Program at the MMRP. Fabien comes from France where he graduated with two Master of Science degrees in ecosystem management and conservation as well as in ecological modelling. Over the past five years, Fabien has gained cetacean research experience through his collaborations with a variety of international projects. Together with Dr. Bejder and Dr. Christiansen (Aquatic Megafauna Research Unit, formerly known as the Murdoch University Cetacean Unit at Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia) Fabien has contributed to several body condition and health assessment studies of Southern right whales, sperm-whales and gray whales. As part of his PhD project, Fabien is assessing Hawaiian cetacean populations’ health status using photogrammetry methods.
