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 have impacted human environments including biodiversity.

Most of her research now focuses now on the Pyrenean area, and are used for studies at the meso- or micro-geographical level allowing cross-discplinary approaches. She is implied in the AmphiPYR (funded by the Labex DRIIHM-ANR-11-LABX-0010) and the PAPEL Project (leaded by S. Jacob, funded by Region Occitanie and supported by ZA PYGAR)

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