Cindy grew up in France. She completed her Masters degree in Ecology at Paris 11 University. Her Master’s research project brought her to Australia in 2007 where she worked on coral reef fish ecology with Mark Meekan and Corey Bradshaw at AIMS in Darwin. She had the opportunity to do field work in East Timor with the Northern Territory Government, working with local East Timorese people to carry out marine habitat surveys for coastal mapping purposes. She realized she was interested in people and as a result decided to work in the interdisciplinary field that involves Social and Ecological Sciences. She worked as a Research Associate at the School for Environmental Research, Charles Darwin University for 3 years on applied projects using participatory research methods, like scenario planning and modelling, with a wide range of stakeholders (decision-makers, scientists, Indigenous people, cattlemen, school children etc.). She moved to Townsville 2 years ago and has been working as Research Assistant for Joshua Cinner and Nick Graham on a variety of projects looking at coral reef ecology, and the impact of fishery management on the livelihood of coastal communities.
