About assoc. prof. Pelletier:
Her research program explores how rapid evolutionary changes can affect the population dynamics of wild species. Her research group carries out studies that range from pure evolutionary demography to conservation. Most of the work is based on longitudinal studies of marked animal populations (such as wild sheep and goats) to understand how change in environmental conditions (natural and artificial) lead to change in life histories, ecology and population dynamics and how these changes could feedback on the ecological dynamics.
Fanie Pelletier has her BSc from the University of Laval, Canada, and her PhD from the University of Sherbrooke, Canada. She carried out her postdoctoral research at the Center for Population Biology at Imperial College London, England. Her current position is as Associate Professor at the University of Sherbrooke and she is the Canada Research Chair in Evolutionary Demography and Conservation.
