Univ. Nantes


Brice holds a PhD in geography (University of Nantes, France, 2004) where he has been an Associate Professor since 2007. He works within the LETG lab of which he is also a deputy director since 2015. He collaborates with IUML, a large scientific consortium dedicated to marine and coastal researches based in Nantes. During these past 11 years he received 5 grants for research programs (as a PI) and has been involved in 11 others grant as either a participant or as a work package leader. He also spent a one year sabbatical stationed at the TBTI headquarters at Memorial University, Canada.

Brice is a geographer whose research focuses on the relations between humans and maritime space. Through the lens of science and technology studies and critical approaches, he uses the case of fisheries in marine spatial planning to study how power relations and knowledge issues intertwine in (geo)technological devices (data, types of knowledge, planning documents, mapping features) that ultimately shape 'socio-technical agencements', forming an intermediate with the marine 'environment'. He mainly develops his research in Europe and, depending on the opportunities, in other places (Canada, Senegal, Mauritania, Guinea, Chile, Indonesia...).
