I am an evolutionary biologist interested in
using fungi as models to study subjects as the evolution of
host-parasite interactions and the evolution of sex and recombination.
During my PhD, I worked with the fungus Microbotryum violaceum, a
sterilizing parasite that infects several species of the
Caryophyllaceae family. I started as associate professor (Maître de
conférences) at the MNHN in Paris in September 2007. I am currently
studying evolution of sex and mating types in Ascomycetes.
