About:

I'm working on the genetic diversity of the Flat oyster (Ostrea edulis). Trying to decipher how they evolve and the impact of humans on their genetic profiles. I've sampled oysters from all around Europe (from Corsica to North of Norway), as well as one population in state of Maine in the US. I'll be in a research stay at Cornell University from Oct21 to March22.
