Work interests

I manage the 3D imaging facility (EasyTom 150 microtomograph and associated imaging workstations) which is housed at the ISEM. This facility is part of the imaging platform MRI (Montpellier Ressources Imagerie). X-ray microtomography makes it possible to study extant and fossil organisms in a non-destructive manner. I help researchers and students to apply 3D imaging techniques to their favourite study organism. Within the framework of my research, I develop 3D analysis software and focus on the evolution of primate cranial structures. I develop and maintain the websites of the scientific journals Palaeovertebrata and MorphoMuseuM. ORCID id: 0000-0002-5819-2653 https://orcid.org/0000-0002-5819-2653.
