I joined the iEcoLab in Fall 2020 to work on the landscape genomics of the spotted lanternfly in the United States. I am currently investigating the spread of this invasive species using genomic tools, in order to understand its dispersal pathways and the evolutionary changes occurring along its spread.

I earned my Ph.D in evolutionary ecology at the University of Rennes (France) in 2018. I studied the patterns and mechanisms of coexistence between invasive and native species, using targeted eDNA metabarcoding, population and landscape genetics, and analyses of trophic networks with stable isotopes. Broadly, I am interested in using biological invasions to understand the evolutionary changes occurring along species spread, on the species itself and on the community.
