Germain’s research focuses on various ecological and behavioral processes in marine megafauna populations of coastal ecosystems. He investigates how anthropogenic and natural factors are linked to these processes in wild populations, as a priority for their effective conservation.
He received his PhD from the University of Montpellier in 2019 with a main focus on providing biological information for a more effective conservation of coral reef sharks using multiple approaches: diversity assessments with environmental DNA, baited cameras (BRUVS) and visual censuses (UVCs), population connectivity via seascape genetics and trophic ecology. Before his PhD in New Caledonia, he also worked in various places such as Florida, Western Australia, Guadeloupe (French West Indies), Reunion Island, Mayotte and France.
