I am a Ph.D. student working on "the control of diatom blooms and successions by biotic interactions in the Western English Channel"

Research topics

My project consists of identifying the interaction network involved in the control of the dominant diatom blooms in the Western English Channel. We formulated the hypothesis that eukaryotic and viral parasites form a structured community that develops synchronously during diatom blooms and contributes significantly to their decline.
