Christian E. Vincenot

I am currently Assistant Professor (Permanent) with the Biosphere Informatics Laboratory, Department of Social Informatics, Kyoto University.

My main research interests lies in the development of Hybrid Mechanistic Simulation approaches based on Individual/Agent-Based Modeling, and in their applications to tackle ecological issues. Beside this theoretical work, I am engaging in field research to improve our understanding of the ecology of threatened fruit bats on paleotropical islands (Ryukyus, New Caledonia, etc) and promote their conservation. I have created in 2014 the interdisciplinary Island Fruit Bat Research Group (IBRG) to mutualize these efforts.
