About Michael Hochberg

Michael Hochberg is a Research Director with the CNRS. He studies how interactions such as parasitism, predation and mutualism shape population biology. Over his career he has published over 100 articles and book chapters, and given more than 80 invited talks. He has been principal investigator on numerous funding awards, including grants from the NSF (1995-1997), the EEC (1996-1998), the British Council (1996-1998), French Ministry of the Environment (12 grants since 1991), the Agence National de Recherche (2006-2009; 2009-2012), and the McDonnell Foundation (2012-2018). In 1993, he organized a series of 6 workshops (leading to an edited volume in 1996), bringing together over 80 participants from Great Britain and France. He has co-edited several volumes and journal special issues, including “Parasitoid Population Biology” (Princeton University Press, 2000), Invasions (Trends in Ecology and Evolution, 2005), Evolutionary Rescue in Changing Environments (Phil Trans R Soc B, 2012), Evolution and Cancer (Evolutionary Applications, 2012), and Ecological effects of environmental change (Ecology Letters, 2013). In 1997, Dr. Hochberg received the CNRS Silver Medal for excellence in research.
