Emeline Pettex is a marine biologist and a specialist of marine top predators. She obtained a PhD from the University of Montpellier 2 in 2011, where she has studied the foraging ecology of seabirds in the North Atlantic and developed skills in telemetry. The same year, she became the coordinator of the aerial surveys SAMM (Marine Megafaune Aerial Survey in the French EEZ), which aimed to increase the knowledge on abundance and year-round distribution of seabirds, marine mammals and turtles. She joined Cohabys (Adera) in 2015 to work on the RESPECT project. This multidisciplinary research project studies the propagation of the sound from wind turbine construction and the effects of noise on marine mammal populations. She has published more than 20 articles in peer-reviewed journals.
