Morgane Gibert is a permanent CNRS researcher and an anthropological biologist with a background in ecology. She is interested in how socio-ecological factors drive population dynamics and human biological diversity as well as how human past activities impacted human environment including biodiversity.

Most of her researches focused now on the Occitanian and Mediterranean area and used to manage research at the meso- or micro-geographical level allowing cross-discplinary approaches. She co-lead the AmphiPYR (funded by the Labex DRIIHM-ANR-11-LABX-0010) and the LaPEISH (Region Occitania, Défi-clé sciences du passé) Projects.

She is also involved in outreach and communication for CAGT and for the CNRS and member of the steering committee of Zone Atelier PYGAR (RZA-INEE)
