EN/ I am interested in the mechanisms underlying the repartition of biodiversity in a conservation context, and in particular in the role of evolutionary history in the contemporaneous patterns. I have been focusing on the effects of life history traits (reproduction types and types of larvae) and paleoclimates (past sea-level changes) on diversification patterns and population genetic structures. I have moved from single species studies to multispecies studies in a comparative framework (comparative phylogeography). I have studied both natural biodiversity patterns and anthropogenic ones (invasive species), of marine invertebrates (echinoderms, cnidarians, mollusks) and vertebrates (fish, sharks, sea turtles) as well as fungi and wasps. With the advent of genomics, I moved towards the study of the coral holobiont, with metabarcoding of its symbiotic partners (bacterial and Symbiodiniaceae communities) and population genomics of the host, to better apprehend the holobiont adaptive capacities and the resilience of reef ecosystems.
