I am a microbial ecologist specialized in host-microbe interactions and ecosystem functions. I will start as an assistant professor at the Université de Sherbrooke in January 2020. I hold a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Applied Microbial Ecology. My research focuses on the questions at the intersection between ecology, microbiology, statistics, genomics, and bioinformatics. My interests are the host-microbe interactions in terrestrial ecosystems (mainly forest) but also in the human gut ecosystem. I completed an undergraduate degree in Biology (2007-2010) at the Université Laval in Québec city, Canada. I then completed two masters, one in Terrestrial Ecology (Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, 2010-2011) and one in Statistics (Polytechnica de Catalunya, 2011-2012) in Spain. I finally completed my Ph.D. in Biology at the Université du Québec à Montréal (2012-2017) in Canada. I recently completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Marie-Claire Arrieta at the University of Calgary.
