LE STRADIC Soizig
I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). My research focuses on community ecology, including tropical herbaceous communities and savannas, restoration ecology and functional ecology. I did my co-supervision thesis between the University of Avignon and the Federal University of Minas Gerais (Belo Horizonte Brazil) and I then worked at Gembloux AgroBioTech at the University of Liège (Belgium), in collaboration with a mining company in the Democratic Republic of Congo. During this period, I worked on the analysis of the impacts of anthropogenic degradations and land use changes on the vegetation structure. This work aimed to put in place tools for the conservation and restoration of tropical herbaceous ecosystems in Brazil and the Democratic Republic of Congo. After a new stay in Brazil, at the Estadual Paulista University (UNESP) in Rio Claro, I am currently in Germany to continue my research. In recent years, my research aims to understand the impact of disturbances such as fire and changes in land use, on the allocation of biomass and the functional root traits of savannah plant communities. It's also about understanding the impact of these changes on ecosystem processes and the consequences on carbon stocks in savannas.
