Graduated in Biology of Organisms from University Paris 6, France, with a M.sc. in Marine Biology and Oceanography, I did my PhD at the Natural History Museum of Paris on the Evolutionary Systematics and the Molecular Ecology of deep sea gastropods from New Caledonian seamounts.
After my PhD, I worked for two another years at the Museum as an Assistant Professor on the Phylogeography and the Evolution History of
freshwater organisms with amphidromous life cycles.
I'm currently working at the Pacific Biological Station of Nanaimo. My project aim at documenting the Diversity and Distribution of marine benthic communities in the Northeast Pacific and evaluating, using molecular ecology tools, the effects of biological invasions on the structure and the evolution of marine diversity.
