Professor and researcher
Luc-Alain Giraldeau, Chief Executive Officer at the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), was a professor and researcher at Université du Québec à Montréal at the time of his collaboration with Daily tous les jours. His research in behavioural ecology concerned group living and especially the factors that interfere with the emergence of cooperation. He popularizes science in his books (Nature All Around Us), public conferences (TEDx Montréal), numerous appearances on radio and participation in documentaries (The Secret Life of Pigeons). He promotes interactions between science and art and is especially proud of his contribution to the 21 Balançoires.
