I'm professor of Botany, Entomology and Systematics. I'm co-leading the laboratory of Zoology with Prof. Pierre Rasmont.
I'm developing studies to globally understand bee diversity and conservation. My Ph-D field background is Systematics. I published species descriptions, phylogenies and monographies. Now I'm leading projects exploring how bee diversity evolved at population and upper taxonomic levels (species, families) considering fossils, molecular phylogenies, phylogeography and bee-plant chemical interactions. We are also developing research focusing on emergent global threats like climate change.
