Research topics

My main research work focus of the fate of organic matter (OM) in aquatic ecosystems in the presence of adjacent wetlands zones (mangroves, varzea ...). More specificaly,  I work on the contribution of this MO in food webs, and in maintaining the productivity and biodiversity in coastal environments. To do this, I use the method of fatty acid markers in parallel with the stable isotopes of C and N. I am also interrested on the role of aquaculture discharges on the biodiversity of estuarine and coastal areas.


I teach mainly aquatic ecology within the 3 courses of Master SDUEE (MNHN-UPMC).

I am in charge of these courses since their creations. Other teaching:-sampling-inventory-data analysis-scientific English

OEM - Collection and inventory of coastal organismes . E2F “Sea”, 3 ECTS
EBE-functional Ecology of natural and anthropized ecosystems 3 ECTS
SEP - Introduction to inventories in insular and coastal environments 3 ECTS
