Since October 2016, I work as a PostDoc at the University of Liverpool (UK), investigating “Limits to Adaptation” for populations in the face of climate change. More details in the Research section.


My PhD was split between the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel (Germany), the EAWAG Kastanienbaum (Switzerland) and the Queen Mary University of London (UK). Different research expertise and collaborators in these places made it possible to explore different angles of my very broad PhD topic : “Interactive effects of parasite pressure and environmental change on speciation dynamics”. Lots of travelling was therefore one of the key features of my dissertation process, fitting in well with my general wanderlust.
