Recherche  The main goal of my research is to understand how historical and current processes determine spatial patterns of biodiversity (and notably of intraspecific genetic diversity) in complex landscapes such as dendritic river networks, and on their consequences from a biodiversity conservation standpoint. My ongoing project aims at determining the introduction pathways of two global invasive alien species (the red swamp crayfish Procambarus clarkii and the spinycheek crayfish Faxonius limosus) in a meta-social-ecosystem composed by a network of artificial gravel pits located in Southwestern France. I am tackling this issue using empirical genetic data, genetic data simulated under various competing colonization scenarios and approximate Bayesian computations coupled to random forest algorithms (ABC-RF). This work is co-supervised by Julien Cucherousset and Géraldine Loot. Formation  PhD in Ecology, Biodiversity and Evolution (University of Toulouse, 2014)
