Plankton chemical ecology, microalgal physiology, Harmful Algal Blooms



LEMAR Laboratory



I mainly study the chemical ecology of plankton, and the role of these chemical interactions between species on the dynamics of microalgal blooms (including Harmful Algal Blooms), but also on the fate of organic matter within marine ecosystems.

I was recruited as a Chargé de Recherche at CNRS in 2022. After starting to work as an assistant engineer in 2011 at LEMAR, I did my PhD in cotutelle between the University of Wollongong (Australia) and the University of Bretagne Occidentale (at LEMAR) on allelopathic interactions between microalgae. I then worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the DYNECO laboratory of Ifremer, in collaboration with the Station Biologique de Roscoff on the interactions between dinoflagellates and their parasites (PARACIDE and PARALLAX projects). I also worked on the mixotrophy of dinoflagellates (EXAM project) in the DYNECO laboratory of Ifremer, and as an engineer at LEMAR in the ALG-AD project.
