Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Biology, Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC), Strasbourg-Illkirch, France, 2002

Current position

I’m an assistant professor in the Biology Department at the University of Perpignan. In the laboratory (CNRS, UMR 5244, Ecology and Evolution of interactions), I work on the interaction between the human blood fluke Schistosoma mansoni and its mollusc intermediate host Biomphalaria glabrata.
