About me

I'm Steve Vissault, a PhD candidate in bioinformatic at the Integrative Ecology Lab led by Dominique Gravel. At the IELab, we use ecological theories to improve our ability to predict species distributions and interactions at biogeographical scale. I'm working on building full stack infrastructure delivering essential biodiversity variables (EBVs) from open data in real time. I use NodeJS (Express on the back with Vue/Angular.js on the front) to develop this project.

Current projects

  • Expose ecological data through RestFul API, R packages and web portals.
    1. Coléo (Fr) - Biodiversity monitoring infrastructure in partnership with MFFP / MELCC
    2. Mangal (En) - Full stack infrastructure exposing ecological interaction around the globe.
  • Building automated distribution maps based on experts and citizens knowledges.
