Bonjour !

I am a PhD student working on planktonic communities across the oceans. I am focusing on their interactions, in particular symbioses involving photosynthetic organisms. To discover this fascinating world, I am working on various Tara-Oceans datasets, mainly using metabarcoding and image analyses.

This small web space is meant to gather some thoughts and some stuff I make and interest me.

Scientific and student life


  • Batucada: I enjoy playing brazilian percussions at Mulêketú, a bloco performing samba-reggae rhythms.
  • Brass band: I also play in the fanfare Les pattes à caisse.
  • Photography: I try to take pictures of new places I visit (here and there).
