I would like to develop an integrative research project on the effect of the environment (biotic and abiotic) on the evolution of genomes and phenotypic plasticity. My approaches are at the interface between bioinformatics, ecology and evolution.
Since I joined the lab, my research has focused on different aspects of phenotypic plasticity. Regarding the host / parasite interactions, I use comparative population genomics (pool-sequencing) to better understand the origin of a new, unusual, nocturnal chronotype of Schistosoma mansoni, and the molecular basis of the behavioral change leading to a host switch in natural populations. I am also interested in phenotypic variation in hybrids and the underlying molecular mechanisms.
I am also involved in the study of the dynamics of coral holobiont (formed by the host cnidarian, symbiotic algae and microbiota) in response to thermal stress, as well as that of the oyster and its associated microbiota during pathogenesis. The response of these organisms is studied both at the transcriptome level in the host macroorganism, and the dynamics of associated microbial communities, and at different scales.
