Overview

The scientific research I have contributed so far aims at investigating the mechanisms underlying the origin and the maintenance of biodiversity. I am mostly using genomic approaches to investigate the link between genes and phenotypes in order to better understand the biology, the ecology and the evolution of animal and plant populations in the wild. I am also involved in teaching and popularization of science. Aside, I am a wilddlife and travel photographer and a passionate naturalist.
