Alienor Chauvenet completed an MSc in Conservation Science and PhD in Ecology at Imperial College London, UK. Her PhD focused on understanding and modelling the dynamics of translocated populations, and developing a method to use translocations as an adaptation tool to climate change. After her PhD, in 2012, she worked for the British government, in the National Wildlife Management Team, as an ecological modeller, focusing on managing human wildlife conflict. In 2014,she moved to Australia for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Queensland. In 2018 she became a lecturer in quantitative ecology at Griffith University.
