I am an evolutionary biologist working with genomes. I try to make biological sense of genomic singularities observed through comparative genomics. I have a special focus on host-parasite interactions and I use bioinformatics as a tool to perform this research.

My main topics of interest are:

  • The impact of non tree-like evolution such as horizontal gene transfers and hybridization on species biology
  • Evolution and adaptation of animals in the absence of sexual reproduction and the underlying mechanisms
  • Genomic signatures of adaptation to a parasitic life-style
