Frederic has a Master degree in geomatics (2005) and he is working as an Engineer in Territorial Information Systems at the LESSEM (Mountain Ecosystems and Societies Laboratory), formerly Irstea, now INRAE (National Institute for Research in Agriculture, Food and the Environment) in Grenoble. Designer, administrator and modeler of large spatial databases, he contributes to research efforts in economics and ecology. During the course of his career, Fred has developed web interfaces for data enhancement on a wide range of themes. His initial work focused on the creation of multi-source socio-economic databases at municipal and national levels (SIDDT) to facilitate territorial diagnostics. He is particularly interested in mountain territories, developing mapping platforms for ski resorts, but also for pastoral areas of local or transhumant herds in the Alps. Fred participated in the 2012-14 grazing areas survey in the French alpine regions, as the person in charge of the data and the development of the web portal (Pâturoscope). Since then, in collaboration with the grazing livestock support services, he has been working on the Mountain Pastures-Sentinels database, dealing with the impacts of climate change, and more recently on the development of a wolf predation alert tool (Maploup) for livestock farmers, herders, local authorities, etc.
