Broadly, I am interested in characterize and describe the herpetological diversity of Madagascar, understand how this has evolved, and use this knowledge to suggest conservation measures aimed at safeguarding Madagascar ecosystems. Depending on the different questions, I target single species, specific groups of organisms, or investigate the host-microbiome relationships. To do so we are combining traditional collection-based approaches (specimen collection and comparative specimen inspection), molecular phylogenetics and phylogenomics, population genetic and genomics, molecular taxonomic identification, biogeography, bioinformatics, modelling and ecology.
