I am a researcher in spatial ecology and genetics.
I am mostly interested in unraveling ecological and evolutionary processes driving the functioning of natural populations and communities, notably through molecular tools.
Holder of a PhD in Landscape Genetics performed under an Industrial Agreement for Training through Research (CIFRE convention), two main axes naturally emerge from my work :
- a "fundamental" axis on the one hand, focusing on a better understanding of the influence of natural and anthropogenic factors on the spatial organization of the different components of biodiversity;
- a "methodological" axis on the other hand, based on the use but also the development of new technical and statistical procedures designed both to improve our understanding of biological processes and to better respond in an operational way to current conservation issues.
These two components, which intersect and reinforce one another, constitute the backbone of my scientific journey and allow me to develop scientific interactions on various projects and themes.
Oh, and I am also fond of birds and wildlife photography !
