My researches concern the systematics (description of more than 150 new species), the evolution and the coevolution of Monogenea and their fish hosts. At the moment, I mainly study Cichlids from Central African (Cameroon, Tanganyika Lake), Morocco and their associated parasites (used as evolutionary and biogeographical tags).
