Expertises de recherche

La thématique de mes recherches s’articule autour des effets des processus évolutifs sur les populations. Des modes de reproduction atypiques, des changements démographiques ou environnementaux sont des exemples de facteurs qui laissent une signature au niveau de la diversité génétique et épigénétique. Mes recherches s’efforcent de décrypter cette signature et d’en interpréter les origines dans le but de mieux comprendre et protéger la biodiversité.

Research interest

My research interests focus on the effects of evolutionary processes on populations. Atypical reproductive modes, demographic and environmental fluctuations can modify the pattern of genetic and epigenetic diversity. We aim to infer the processes responsible of the patterns observed for understanding and protecting biodiversity.
