Current research topics

My research aims at understanding the ecological and evolutionary consequences of anthropic changes on species interactions, community structure and ecosystem functioning. To do so, I aim at combining a diversity of approaches, such as community ecology, trophic ecology, landscape ecology and behavioural ecology. Plant-arthropods trophic foodwebs (plant-herbivore-parasitoid-hyperparasitoid, plant-pollinator) are my main biological models. For now, my work mainly focuses in agricultural systems with the implementation of habitat management strategies for biodiversity conservation purposes and ecosystem services enhancement.

Sharing science is a main part of my activities. I participated to several vulgarization events (e.g. Pint of science, 2018; Fête de la science, 2018 & 2019; press article in Sans Transition Bretagne n°16 (March-April 2019)), university lectures, and meetings with farmers.
