My research focuses on the understanding of the functioning of microbial communities. I address this question by organizing my work around the following two themes: 1/ Diversity and functioning of biofilms and microbial mats: mainly in aquatic ecosystems (freshwater and marine). I am mainly interested in coastal ecosystems with a clear preference for the tidal zone. I study the diversity of microorganisms in these biofilms and their role in the functioning of ecosystems. 2/ Interactions in microbial ecosystems: between microorganisms (communication, ...) or between a host and a microorganism (symbiosis, ...)
Mes recherches sont axées sur la compréhension du fonctionnement des communautés microbiennes. J'aborde cette question en articulant mes travaux autour des deux thématiques suivantes : 1/ Diversité et fonctionnement des biofilms et tapis microbiens : principalement dans les écosystèmes aquatiques (eau douce et marins). Je m’intéresse principalement aux écosystèmes côtiers avec une nette préférence pour la zone de balancement des marées. J'étudie la diversité des micro-organismes de ces biofilms ainsi que leur rôle dans le fonctionnement des écosystèmes. 2/ Les interactions dans les ecosystèmes microbiens : entre les microorganismes (communication, ...) ou entre un hôte et un microorganisme (symbioses, ...)
