Ph.D., University of Poitiers (France), 1997.

Main responsabilities

  • Coordinator of second year of Master “Ecological Engineering” of the University of Poitiers

Research interests

Describe and understand the role of historical and current natural factors along with the role of anthropogenic activities on the genetic structure of animal populations.

Study the dynamics and evolution of metapopulations of terrestrial isopods to better understand the infection dynamics and prevalence of Wolbachia in natural populations.

Study mating strategies in isopods.

Keywords: genetic markers, metapopulation, dispersal, host-parasite relationships, conservation genetics.
