After my degrees in Neurobiology and Immunology I worked for 11 years in an INSERM laboratory investigating immunopathology related inflammation focusing on the glucocorticoid receptor.

I joined the Evolutionary Community Ecology team at ISEM in September 2007.

I am involved in various experimental evolution projects with Nicolas Mouquet, Michael Hochberg and Oliver Kaltz.

I work on projects investigating bacterial adaptation to abiotic stress (salinity and nutrient concentration) and host-parasite coevolution (using Pseudomonas flourescens SBW25-lytic bacteriophage Phi2 and Paramecium caudatum – Holospora undulata model systems).
