Areas of expertise
I am a researcher in microbial ecology applied to sustainable aquaculture at the IFREMER institute and in the MARine Biodiversity, Exploitation and Conservation research (MARBEC) unit (UMR) in Sète and Palavas-les-flots, France. I am a microbial ecologist with a broad experience in microbial community ecology, genomics and bioinformatics. My research consists in understanding ecological patterns of microbial communities, free-living or associated with a host such as algae, by investigating their diversity and assembling processes, their interactions with the environment and their adaptation to specific ecological niches. More precisely, I focus on the interactions between micro- and macro-algae and their associated microbes.
