Evolutionary biologist, since September 2013, I am an assistant professor (lecturer) at the University of Montpellier in France. I am a member of the Evolution, Vectors, Adaptation and Symbiosis team at the Institut des Sciences de l’Evolution de Montpellier (ISE-M). I am teaching Computer Sciences and Biology (Omics).
My research focuses on the study of the impact of transposable elements, one type of DNA repeats, on genome structure, evolution and adaptation bringing together computational and experimental approaches with particular interest for new sequencing technologies.
My work is supported by several funds such as:
D-Range, Labex ceMEB, ProjetIA-10-LABX-0004
