Work interests

I work in the department ‘Change’, 80 % of the time in the ‘Experimental Evolution of Communities’ (EEC) team and 20 % in the ‘Biodiversity: dynamics, interactions and conservation’ team. I help design and implement experiments and protocols in the EEC team. I work mostly on projects looking at protist (Paramecium, Tetrahymena) dispersal in metapopulations, on adaptation of protist or bacterial communities across stress gradients (temperature or salinity) and host-parasite coevolution (in the Paramecium caudatum – bacterial parasite Holospora undulata model system). I also participate in field experiments looking at facilitation between plants in the BIODICEE team.

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.
