Alexa Sadier

While one of our speakers is a flying mammal, another speaker studies flying mammals. Dr. Alexa Sadier, a Chamonix valley native, researches evolutionary biology by studying bats.

Growing up in Argentiere fostered Alexa’s spirit to constantly push herself. She’s an alpinist and a freeride skier. Breaking through her physical limits inspired her to push the limits of scientific research. In her own words: “ I quickly understood that exploring knowledge is not so different from exploring nature.” She received her PhD from Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon and is currently conducting research in the Caribbean. Alexa will speak to the importance of pushing scientific limits, regardless of whether they yield breakthroughs now or 100 years from now.
