Work interests

My research revolves around an atypical reproduction system found in some ant species: social hybridogenesis. Using both empirical (genomics) and theoretical (modelling) approaches, I try to discover new cases of social hybridogenesis, and attempt to understand the genetical and ecological conditions allowing for the emergence and maintenance of these fascinating systems.
