Proposed topics for Bachelor’s thesis

For SP 2020, we propose two new topics for Bachelor’s thesis.

1- Reconstructing the impacts of pesticides on aquatic communities using sediment cores:

Type of research : practical.

outline: the student will have to analyse fossil remains from lake sediment cores and analyse how aquatic communities have been affected by past and current applications of pesticides on the watershed. This study is part of a larger research project conducted in collaboration with a French University.

2- The role of “serious games” in fostering climate adaptations in local societies

Type of research : literature synthesis and game testing

outline: the student will have to investigate the diversity of serious games (video and board games) developed worldwide for climate adaptation purposes and will also be in charge of testing our own prototype of serious game (links to the Mountaincraft project).
