PhD: Biology and Ecology 1999, France.
Current position: permanent Researcher at INRA,Thonon, France
Main research interests and domains of expertise : Lacustrine Ecology - Biodiversity – Paleolimnology
- Study of the dynamics & diversity of planktonic communities
- Effects of local and global forcing factors on microbial diversity & food web structure
- Experiences in the coupling between limnological and paleolimnological approaches to serve research questions in ecology
- Application of molecular tools in limnology and paleolimnology, in particular to characterize the diversity of lacustrine plankton/micro-organisms and reconstruct pas lacustrine biodiversity from sedimentary DNA.
