PhD candidate at NTNU, Department of Geography.

My name is Benjamin Cretois and I am a – French- PhD Student at the Department of Geography at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology under the supervision of Jan Ketil RødJohn Linnell and Erlend Nilsen. My PhD takes place within the project Transforming Citizen Science for Biodiversity, a project which aim to improve the way we use Citizen Science.

My research focus primarily on finding ways to better use Citizen Science observations to produce better species distribution maps. My expertise lies in GIS and spatial analysis and I recently found an interest in Bayesian statistics which I pretend I understand.

Apart from being in my office solving the R code I messed up you will find me on the mat practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or outside lifting stones.
