Doctorant(e)

As a PhD student, I am investigating the diversity and distribution of green micro algae (Chlorophyta) in the world wide ocean. These micro algea are phylogenetically closely related to land plants but are not well studied in marine environments. During this thesis I am working on metabarcode datasets.

EDUCATION

2014- Current PhD thesis at the Station Biologique de Roscoff, Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Sorbonne Universités), Paris VI (supervisor: D. Vaulot)
