Biographie

My main research interests are in the biodiversity and functioning of marine ecosystems, particularly small fishes and tropical coral reefs. I received my PhD from James Cook University in Australia in 2016. Since then, I have further developed my research as an independent postdoctoral research fellow at the Smithsonian Institution in Edgewater, Maryland (MarineGEO fellowship) and at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada (NSERC Banting fellowship). Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Synthesis and Analysis of Biodiversity (CESAB), based at the University of Perpignan in France.
