Meredith Root-Bernsteinchargé de recherche (researcher)at CNRS/ Muséum
I am an ecologist, ethnobiologist and conservation scientist, with an interest in degradation and restoration ecology, ethnography and ethnobiology of human-environment relationships, governance and policy. I work primarily in the central Chilean woodlands, but also in the Po Delta in Italy, the Lesotho highlands, and am planning research in Sudan. I also teach human-nonhuman animal interaction at the GEODesign masters program of the Design Academy Eindhoven. In 2019-2020 I did a diploma in art research and experimentation at ENDA (Paris). In my permanent position as a CNRS researcher at the National Museum of Natural History (Paris) I am involved in the Museum's Art-Science Commission. I collaborate with several artists, and try to find the time to develop my own art practice.
