I am a researcher in evolutionary biology and ecology. I try to understand theoretically and document experimentally the consequences of adaptive dynamics at different scales, from individuals to communities. I use mathematical and simulation modeling frameworks from various disciplines such as behavior, physics, population dynamics, quantitative and population genetics.
I’m fond of insects (parasitoids and agricultural pests) as biological models, seeking to understand the fascinating strategies they use to thrive in their environments. I’m particularly interested in movement strategies and decision-making as complex adaptive phenotypes.
