As a botanist and naturalist my main research interests are the taxonomy, phylogenetics and diversification of flowering plants. I completed my PhD at Paris Natural History Museum in 2012 where I became passionate about plants’ evolution.
Among other research interests, I am working (1) on the diversification of the mega-diverse genus Euphorbia (Euphorbiaceae) in Madagascar, (2) on the largest endemic family in Madagascar (Sarcolaenaceae), and (3) on the spiny solanums (Solanaceae) of Tropical Asia.
I have also general interest in the evolution of crop wild relatives and in the drivers of plant domestication. In particular, I am investigating the evolutionary context of the brinjal eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) and its closest wild relatives.
A listing of my past and current works (PhD dissertation, publications) is available on my personal website and on my profile pages (Google Scholar et ResearchGate).
