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, my institutional webpage).
My main interests lie in the evolution of mating system, adaptation and the mutual influences of both processes. During my PhD, 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.
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.
