 Research themes

Throughout different stages of my professional and academic career I have worked on several multi- and interdisciplinary projects with an emphasis on aquatic ecology and biological invasions. My research considers two main topics: the analysis of the bio-ecological responses of aquatic species to environmental heterogeneity and the effects of parasites on the biology and ecology of aquatic mollusks. I am currently a research associate at the Evolutionary Genetics and Ecology team (EEG) at the Centre d’Ecologie Fonctionnelle & Evolutive (CEFE, Montpellier, France) where I am working on evolutionary biology projects in hermaphrodites using the freshwater snail Physa acuta as a model system. This experience would allow me to achieve my aim of expanding my knowledge and skills in this area, which fulfills my main interests and priorities from a scientific point of view.
