Dr. Ferrière studied mathematics (commutative algebra, differential geometry, and ergodic theory) at the Ecole Normale Supérieure and at the University of Paris. He received his bachelor's degree in 1990 and his master's in 1991. He earned his Ph.D. in mathematical ecology from the University of Paris in 1995.
Dr. Ferrière first worked as a lecturer and teaching assistant in Paris before accepting an appointment as research assistant at the University of Arizona in the U.S.A. There he undertook research in population genetics at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from 1993 to 1995. He is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris and Adjunct Professor at the University of Arizona, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
Dr. Ferrière's fields of interest are nonlinear models of population dynamics, dynamics of finite populations, life-history evolution, evolutionary game theory, and conservation biology.
