I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre national de la recherche scientifique, working in the labs Centre d’Ecologie et des Sciences de la Conservation (team CoMaC) & Biologie des Organismes et Ecosystèmes Aquatiques, under the co-supervision of Sandrine Pavoine and Boris Leroy.
My research lies at the interface between ecology, evolution and conservation biology. I am particularly interested in investigating biodiversity patterns at different levels of organisation and through different facets to reveal the historical and contemporary processes – including anthropogenic pressures – that shape them and to guide conservation strategies. Specifically, I pursue two main goals: i) understand eco-evolutionary responses of biodiversity to anthropogenic pressures and ii) identify geographic zones and/or lineages of high conservation priority. I have been addressing these issues on seaweeds of Brittany (France) at the beginning of my career and try since to embrace a wider range of taxa and spatial scales.
The aim of my current post-doctoral research (funded by the LabEx BCDiv) is to identify and study mammal species of high conservation priority based on their phylogenetic originality and their probabilities of extinction.
In parallel, I have a strong interest in sharing scientific knowledge. I do so through my teaching and supervising activities and also through knowledge dissemination for the general public and institutional stakeholders.
