Isabelle Laforest-Lapointe


I’m a Ph.D. student at Université du Québec à Montréal (Montreal, Quebec, Canada), directed by Steve Kembel and Christian Messier.

I did my undergraduate studies in Biology at Université Laval in 2010 (Quebec city, Quebec, Canada), then I completed a Master in Terrestrial Ecology and Biodiversity Management at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona in 2011 (Barcelona, Spain) and I continued studying a Master in Statistics at Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya in 2012 (Barcelona, Spain).

Now I’m back in Canada, working on plant-microbe interactions and genetics. We use next-generation sequencing techniques to identify the members of leaf (phyllosphere) microbial communities in Quebec’s temperate forest.
