Research topics

My research focuses on understanding the functioning of microbial communities. This question is adressed by focusing on the following two themes:

1 / Diversity and functioning of biofilms and microbial mats: mainly in aquatic ecosystems (freshwater and marine). I am mainly interested in coastal ecosystems with a real preference for the intertidal area.

2 / Interactions in microbial ecosystems: between microorganisms (communication, ...) or between a host and a microbe (symbiosis, ...)

Teaching

I teach mainly in ecology and statistics (univariate and multivariate) at the Museum of Natural History and other institutions/universities. I am also part of the ICTs in education (information and communication technologies) committee of the museum of natural history and manage the e-learning platform (http://plateforme-depf.mnhn.fr).

Curator tasks

I am curator of the meiofauna (http://www.mnhn.fr/fr/collections/ensembles-collections/invertebres-marins/meiofaune) and sipunculide collections. The meiofauna collection is composed of about 800 different species mounted on about 3000 glass slides. This collection is composed by 8 different phyla (Annelida, Gastrotricha, Kinorhyncha, Loricifera, Nematoda, Platyhelminthes, Rotifera, Tardigrada).
