À propos

I am an evolutionary biologist currently working in Toulouse, at EDB (Evolution and Biological Diversity). I did my PhdD in Montpellier, at ISEM (Institute of Evolutionary Sciences of Montpellier).

Research interests

I am generally interested in topics at the frontiers of ecology and evolution. I use field and experimental data to investigate how organisms react plastically or adapt to their environment

During my postdoc, I study plant plasticity in response to shade and investigate how the environment of the parents influence offspring traits, using the wild snapdragon, Antirrhinum majus.

During my PhD, I investigated  mating system evolution, adaptation and the mutual influences of both processes. I studied different aspects of this interaction using a hypertolerant, hyperaccumulator plant species, Noccaea caerulescens. This species grows on former mines and non-contaminated soils in Europe and in particularly in the Cévennes, and it is an excellent model to study the interaction of local adaptation in a heterogeneous environment and mating system.

Education

I graduated from both the Master Biosciences, in Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (France) and from the Master Erasmus Mundus in Evolutionary Biology (MEME). The MEME is jointly organised by several European universities: Uppsala, Montpellier, Groningen and Munich.
