I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist, interested in tropical ecology and conservation biology. I use an integrative approach combining empirical observations, experiments, modelling, and trait-based and phylogenetic tools to answer my research questions, and apply these questions to a wide range of systems.

I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at Rice University.

Current Projects

  • Functional diversity and phylogenetic structure of plant communities
  • Effect of habitat disturbance (edge creation and fragmentation) on frugivore-plant mutualisms and on plant communities
  • Frugivore-plant interactions in Madagascar rainforests
  • Mammalian responses to climate change
  • Characterizing¬†extinction trends in Malagasy primate
