I have always been fascinated by nature, and in particular by aquatic environments. After working on marine seaweed as habitats for macroinvertebrates, I am now working on lakes and their microbial communities. I am interested in all things aquatic - fisheries, MPAs, diversity and functioning, interactions with the terrestrial...!

I love being outdoors, whether it's on a boat or hiking in the mountains. I especially like scuba-diving and playing underwater hockey. When it's too rainy or windy, you can find me reading or at the cinema!
