He is the co-author of Sauterelles, Grillons et Criquets de Suisse and Die Stimmen der Heuschrecken, and co-creator of the smartphone app Orthoptera-App. He organises wildlife holidays, specialising in insects, and is equally enthusiastic about insect photography and scientific drawing. During summer, he works as a guard in a Swiss Alps nature reserve. Yoan Braud is an entomologist with a particular interest in the orthoptera of the Alps, Corsica and the Mediterranean region. He was the co-ordinator of the departmental atlas on French orthoptera (Defaut et al. 2009), and he's currently working on the UICN red list for European orthoptera. Since 2014, he has been president of l'ASCETE (Association pour la Caracterisation de l'Etude des Entomocenoses). He works as an independent ecological entomologist with ENTOMIA.
