I’m a PhD student at Station Biologic de Roscoff. I’m particularly interested in the biological processes and molecular mechanism underlying species diverging. I’d like to work on marine unicellular eukaryotes, which provide me with a perfect research model to explore basic scientific issues related to evolution and ecology, such as the interaction between parasites and their hosts.
