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 ecosystems, and to try to find sustainable solutions.

My models are mainly reptiles and lizards in particular, 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.
