Mots clés Functional morphology geometric morphometrics rodents performance evolution

Research activities : I study rodent evolution through their cranial morphology and performance (bite force). I use tools like geometric morphometrics (2D), quantitative genetics, dissections, CT-scans and DiceCT scans… to quantify phenotypic variability at the intra-individual (fluctuating asymetry), intra-population, inter-population and interspecific levels.

Teaching activities : I have also been teaching since the start of my phd as a full-time (64h/year) Teaching Assistant, in first year geology and palaeontology. For my third year, I have also started teaching practical courses in statistics for bio-health master students.
