Domaines de recherche

My work articulates around three disciplines: population genetics (demography, adaptation, selection), reproductive biology (evolution of breeding systems) and ecological genetics (species composition, and epigenetics).

I am interested in the way environmental (and random) processes influence the genetic composition of a given species/population: how selection shapes genetic diversity, and how epigenetics contributes to adaptability. In correlation with this, I study the evolution of breeding systems, and how genetic/epigenetic information can be passed from one generation to the next, providing the material on which selection can act and adaptation can occur.
