I'm developing researches to globally understand the diversity of bees and their conservation. My Ph-D background is the Systematics of different groups of Melittid bees. I published species descriptions, phylogenies and monographies. Now I'm leading projects exploring how bee diversity evolved at population, species or families levels. These projects consider fossils, molecular phylogenies, phylogeography and bee-plant chemical interactions.

My postdoctoral researches are included in the field of chemical ecology and focus on bee-flower relationship. The goal of my current project is to examine how pollen chemical composition influences, and is influenced by, interactions with pollinators. Pollen chemical protection (weak nutritional quality and / or toxicity) as well as adaptations that bees developed to overcome these defenses (specific metabolic pathways and / or symbiosis) are studied in collaboration with other universities (Unine, Ulg, ULB, UCL).

Integrative taxonomy combines multiple and complementary perspectives in order to delineate species boundary . My research compares these taxonomic conclusions obtained from the commonly used lines of evidence in bumblebees. I especially focus on the subgenus Thoracobombus.

My research focuses on taxonomy and paleontology, and the application of geometric morphometrics in these topics. The aim of my current project is the revision of bee fossils based on geometric morphometric analyses of the forewing shape, and a more precise fossil calibration of bee phylogenies. Geometric morphometrics is a powerfull tool in taxonomy as it allows the discrimination of extant groups between them and the assessment of the taxonomic affinities of fossils with extant and other extinct taxa. In order to fulfill my project, I sampled extensively among all extant tribes of bees and I gathered pictures of most bee fossils by visiting the entomological and paleoentomological collections of numerous international museums.

My research focuses on the relation between phenotypic and genotypic variability, and its application to conservation biology. The goal of my current project is to assess phenotypic diversity using geometric morphometrics and determine its potential co-variation with genetic diversity. Geometric morphometrics enables to assess the inter-individual variation but also the intra-individual variation through fluctuating asymmetry analyses. As fluctuating asymmetry is thought to be a potential stress estimator, I currently examine this pattern in bees. I’m also working on the relation between diploid males and genetic diversity.

I’m currently the coordinator and scientific supervisor of the SAPOLL project. The aim of this project is to create and implement an action plan for wild pollinators in Belgium and in the north of France. My main job is to elaborate the action plan in consultation with local stakeholders but also to bring scientific support for communication on pollinators and to local naturalist networks. I’m also in charge of the monitoring of pollinators for the project alongside with the ULg.I have a former experience on pollinators and had the chance to study different models (honey bees, wild bees, other guilds of wild pollinators, squirrel gliders) worldwide (France, Australia, South Africa). Currently my sideline research focuses on the conservation of wild bees and more precisely on the assessment of phenological shifts that might have occurred during the last century.

My biologist background is the Conservation of bumblebees and the Plant-Bee Interactions. I have worked on the impact of invasive alien plants on the foraging behavior of bumblebees. I’m currently the administrator and communication manager of the Interreg SAPOLL project. The aim of this project is to create and implement an action plan for wild pollinators in Belgium and in the north of France. I work on the administrative management of this European project as well as the communicative part.

My research interests encompasses several areas including environmental Science, Plant Protection, entomology and conservation biology. I'm currently studying behaviours of wild pollinators of important crops in Tafilalt region in the framework of FAP " Farming With alternatives pollinators" project. My intentions are to contribute to the protection of biodiversity in the course of climate change.

My researches mainly focus on the dynamics of invasion in bumblebee species at the European continental scale. The aim of my central research project is to understand how physiology, ecology and genetics act together to lead some species to an increase of their distribution areas, while many others present a drastic regression.

My research focuses on the evolutionary ecology, biogeography, chemical ecology, conservation biology, and systematic. Since my Ph-D thesis and my post-docs, I develop projects on the evolution of chemical reproductive traits using an integrative approach that unifies phylogeny, phylogeography, biochemistry, systematics, and behavioral ecology. Now, I'm working on the integration of intraspecific variability in biological conservation and species distribution modelling.

Research areas :
I am an ecologist interested in understanding the impacts of the changes in the landscapes, agricultural schemes and climate on the communities of insect pollinators and their ecosystem services (especially bees: Hymenoptera, Apoidea, Anthophila), with a focus on conservation of wild pollinators. The main objective is to reconcile the sustainability of the crop productivity, beekeeping activity and bee conservation, using e.g. plants-pollinators network analyses, spatial analyses, meta-analyses.
