I am a population geneticist working at the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientique), as a "Chargé de Recherche".
I am a member of the Laboratoire Evolution et Diversité Biologique, Université Paul Sabatier, in Toulouse, France, where I was recruited in 2002.
I am also the Principal Investigator of the PCG (Population and Conservation Genetics) group at the IGC (Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência), in Oeiras, Portugal. I started working at the IGC in 2006 as an invited researcher within the Collaboratorium. I am currently working between Toulouse and Oeiras.
The two main "applications" of my work have been in conservation and recent human evolution. I am interested in data analysis and in the development of simulation-based methods to reconstruct the history of populations. At the same time I have always been involved in either lab or field work, and I wish to maintain all these activities in the group.In the last few years I have been increasingly involved in conservation projects in northern Borneo and Madagascar, among others. See our Research page for more details.
