Black-winged stilt (Himantopus himantopus), Etang du Verdier, Camargue.


Postdoc researcher in Evolutionary Biology

I am an evolutionary biologist passionated by history and diversity of life.

I did my PhD in Montpellier 2 University, France, where i have studied the diversification of Primates and Rodents under the supervision of Emmanuel Douzery (PHYLMOL team). I did a postdoc in Copenhagen at CMEC, on the island diversification and biogeography of the core Corvoid passerine birds with Knud Jønsson and Jon Fjeldså.

I am currently doing a postdoc at the Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology (Losos lab) where I study the island diversification and biogeography of the Indo-Pacific rodents with Jonathan Losos.
My research projects are currently funded by a Marie-Curie fellowship (PIOF-GA-2012-330582-CANARIP-RAT).

As an enthusiastic naturalist, I am passionated by field mammalogy, odonatology, ornithology and vertebrate paleontology.
