Adam Ali

Chercheur associé

Dr. Adam Ali est originaire de France. Il est titulaire d’un doctorat en Biologie, Ecologie et Evolution, obtenu l’Université de Montpellier 2 (2003). Ces travaux sont centrés sur la mise en évidence des changements environnementaux passés induits par les variations climatiques et les activités humaines. Ces recherches sont principalement fondées sur l’analyse à haute résolution spatiale et temporelle de macrorestes végétaux fossilisés dans divers gisements naturels (dépôts calcaires, tourbières et lacs).
