Where do you work? Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Republic of Korea

Position: Post-doctoral researcher

How did you get there? Here, currently means Seoul, South Korea, although it has been a long trip. I started being interested in herps as a kid living in Madagascar and followed my family back to France for high school, where I also started my undergrad. From there I moved to Wales, UK, through an Erasmus exchange, and as I did not want to go back to France I joined a Master degree program in Switzerland - where I started working on treefrogs, almost 10 years ago! After some time being uncertain about what to do next, and a bit of work in the rainforest of Ecuador and some work in London, I worked for the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Korea, from where I found a job as research assistant in Ewha W. University in Seoul. I worked there for a year before starting my PhD in a different university. After graduating, I was hired as post-doc in the same lab in Ewha W. University and it is a pleasure to be back. While I have been working on the behaviour and conservation of the Suweon Treefrog for quite a few years, I am now working on the ecophylogeography and conservation of North East Asian Amphibians.
