About me

Through my research, I am interested in deciphering how evolution shapes the animal world. To do so, I combine an array of different approaches, ranging from behavioral and evolutionary ecology (field and experimental studies) to evo-devo and genomics. I also work in conservation ecology to understand how human activities (e.g. urbanisation, climate change, wildfires, land-use change) impact animals, and try to find sustainable solutions.

My models are mainly lizards and reptiles in general, as well as insects such as water striders and bees.

I currently hold a postdoc position at IGFL and LBMC, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, to investigate the developmental genetic basis of an evolutionary innovation in water striders, using evo-devo and genomic/transcriptomic approaches.
