My activity

I am interested in studying the taxonomic diversity and evolutionary processes that characterize fish communities at the heart of the coral triangle in the Indonesian archipelago. This work is carried out in partnership with Indonesian researchers from LIPI and the Polytechnic School of Sorong (Indonesian Papua) through the organization of joint field expeditions (cf. Lengguru) which concern all the environments and ecosystems located from the mesophotic zone to the highland forests of the island of New Guinea. These research activities are carried out both on a common molecular biology platform located on the Ancol site (Jakarta – Indonesia) and in the infrastructures of ISEM (University of Montpellier) through the supervision of Indonesian doctoral students and the hosting of researchers from the South.
