Research ingeneer Co-head of the SEPA platform (Greenhouse, Rearing & Phenotyping of Arthropods)

My main scientific interest lies in studying neutral and adaptative evolution of invasive species, in particular arthropods.

Skills :

  • evolution of reproduction systems
  • evolution of behaviour & cognition
  • life-history traits
  • population genomics
