Observing a Pseudoboa coronata in French Guiana
Hello and welcome to my homepage. I'm an evolutionary biologist mainly interested in the processes that helped shape diversity, and other topics such as species delineation and population genetics. I did my PhD at the Evolution and Biological Diversity (EDB) lab in Toulouse (France) on the evolutionary history and biogeography of the frogs from the Guiana Shield. Frogs are quite fascinating creatures as they display a large array of life history traits, this diversity being particularly remarkable in the tropics. They are also threatened worldwide and much effort is needed to study and protect them.
Currently, I'm a study leader at BUFO, a French NGO dedicated to herp conservation in the upper Rhine Valley, where I work on conservation and monitoring of amphibians and reptiles.
