Research My research mainly focus on sexual selection, with a special interest for mate choice, how it shapes reproductive strategies and its consequences on fitness. I am particularly interested in cases when mate choice is suboptimal, and if these “mismatches” lead to the evolution of compensatory strategies. My PhD project aims at understanding the genetic underpinning of mate choice, and at identifying its consequences on fitness and on reproductive strategies in a wild monogamous seabird, the black-legged kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla). I am interested in both inbreeding and immune genes of the Major Histocompatibility Complex. Training MSc Biology at Laval University (Québec, Canada) on sexual conflict over mating in water striders.
