Stéphane is a Professor at the Insect Biology Research Institute (IRBI) at Tours University, France. His main research interests focus on the conservation of animals and their interactions, including the study of predator-prey and host-parasitoid relationships in managed and un-managed ecosystems. To explore these topics, he has been applying molecular techniques such as next-generation sequencing and metabarcoding using environmental DNA samples. He has been involved in the conservation of rare Powelliphanta snails, including the description of their earthworm-based diet using DNA.
