Enora Lecordier

Background: I obtained my Masters degree in Ecosystems and Marine Bioproduction at the University of Nantes (France). I did a 2-month internship at Ifremer in Nantes and took part in an offshore campaign to study small pelagic fish communities acoustically using echo sounders. I did a 6-month internship at Wageningen Marine Research (Netherlands) where I developed a Random Forest model to study shellfish beds in the Dutch Wadden Sea using radar images from Sentinel-1. Then I worked as a Research Assistant in remote sensing at the University of Hull for 8 months. I mainly program in R and have a basic knowledge of Javascript and Python.

Research Interests: I have a great interest in remote sensing, programming, GIS, modelling and acoustics. I also have a great interest and curiosity in renewable energy to build a greener future. I would like to develop new methods of environmental monitoring using radar and optical satellites like Sentinel-1/2/3 or Landsat-8 combined with in-situ¬ data. The objective of my PhD project would be to use remote sensing to find suitable locations for offshore aquaculture within offshore wind farms (OWFs) to reduce the surface area of human activities on the marine environment. This project also involves working on the common interests of offshore aquaculture and OWFs.

Why I applied for the Aura CDT: Because I had the possibility to create my own PhD project with a lot of freedom, always in discussion with my supervisor (Dr Rodney Forster). I also applied to be part of a team with people from different backgrounds and to develop relationships with industries.

My PhD Research:

Assessing the potential for colocation of aquaculture with offshore wind farms using remote sensing
