DEPE/ADAGE-ADaptation des Animaux et Gestions Environnementales
I am an evolutionary ecologist working in the Dept. of Ecology, Physiology and Ethology of the Institut Pluridisciplinaire Hubert Curien (Strasbourg, France). My research lies at the interface between population ecology, evolutionary ecology, ecophysiology and ecotoxicology. I am interested in the effects of the biotic and abiotic environment on the life-history traits, the physiology and phenotype of the organisms, with a particular focus on the effects of the parental environment on their young (maternal effects or transgenerational effects). I study the effects of abiotic conditions changing rapidly these past decades: the effects of climate change, urbanisation and chemical pollution (cocktail of trace elements). I also investigate evolutionary trade-offs between different life history traits thanks to individual-based long-term monitoring of wild populations.
