  I am specialized in phylogenetics and molecular evolution. I am working on reconstructing phylogenies of mesopolyploid clades (ancient polyploid clades). I study as well the effects of genomic rearrangements that commonly follow polyploidization, notably the patterns of molecular evolution among subgenomes in plants of the Brassicaceae family. I am also interested in understanding the role of these ancient polyploidization events on the evolution of the gene family controlling the self-incompatibility system in these plants, especially how they contribute to the spectacular allelic diversification of this genetic system.

I have also an interest in metagenomics and I am currently participating at the  "Next Generation Biomonitoring” project (ANR-funded). The goal of this project is to develop and test a generic NGB approach that will detect ecosystem-wide change more rapidly, sensitively and cheaply than current biomonitoring. In the lab we are developping a method allowing the identification of plant-pollinator networks using NGS and samples containing together pollinators and their associated pollen.
