I am a full time teacher at the university of Montpellier. I am particularly interested in the education and training of future teachers, and I am in charge of the master ENSVT, preparing for the national competitive examination : CAPES and Agrégation in biology and Earth Sciences.

I teach many different subjects in biology, including biochemistry, developmental biology, physiology, and evolutionary biology.

I am not part of a research program for the moment, but I have defended a PhD in evolutionary biology, working in the field of population genetics, host-parasite interactions, and of evolution of life history traits.


Keywords : Population genetics, Host-parasite interactions, Mating systems, Evolution of dormancy
