Since 2016, I am an Assistant Professor ('Maître de conférences' in french) at the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, attached to ECOMERS laboratory. My main research areas include understanding the responses and vulnerabilities of marine ecosystems and biodiversity to global change, with a special focus on the Mediterranean Sea.

Previously, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher, successively at the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (Marseille), Villefranche Oceanographic Laboratory (Villefranche sur Mer), Oceanology and Geosciences Laboratory (Wimereux) and Monaco Scientific Center (Monaco).

I obtained a MSc (2005) and a PhD (2008) in 'Oceanography and Marine Environments' from the University of Paris 6.
