Mathilde Martin

PhD student in bioacoustics

My research focuses on vocal communication network in Cape fur seal in Namibia and South Africa. I’m also interested in their social behavior, and the impact of noise and plastic pollution on their physiology.

In 2018, I wrote a thesis on the description of social calls produced by humpback whale calves of Madagascar and the investigation of mother-calf individual vocal signature.

I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biology in 2016 and then specialized in marine environment with a Master’s degree at Sorbonne University.
