I was first interested in health ecology, and especially emerging zoonotic diseases. I applied various tools like spatial and statistical analyses, population genetics, immunogenetics, modelling and controlled infections to multi-scale studies (parasite and host individuals, populations and communities) in transmission ecology. I now share my work time between teaching (especially for the master “ecology and biodiversity” ), research within BioDIcée team and private research at Andromède Océanologie. I am interested in using community ecology for the development of management tools for monitoring seawater quality.
