Work interests

My research focuses on the rodents of the Lesser Antilles during the pre-Columbian period. These bioarchaeological studies combine geometric morphometric morphometry, palaeogenetics and zooarchaeology to identify both biological (morphological and genetic diversity) and cultural (relations between animals and past human societies) markers characterizing these different taxa.

Keywords :

Rodents – Geometric morphometrics – Paleogenetics – Zooarchaeology

The Institute of Evolutionary Science of Montpellier (ISEM – University of Montpellier, CNRS, IRD, EPHE, CIRAD, INRAP) has been focusing research on biodiversity origins and dynamics and the associated evolutionary mechanisms.
