CNRS Directeur de Recherches in Institut des Sciences de l'Evolution de Montpellier
PhD in ENS Lyon (France) with Manolo Gouy
Post-doc in Edinburgh (UK) with Nick Barton
Biological/methodological questions: (i) how much have GC-biased gene conversion impacted genome evolution in eukaryotes? (ii) How could we detect position-specific changes of evolutionary rate during protein evolution, and how much does this relate to adaptive processes? (iii) Is mitochondrial DNA a neutral, clonal, clock-like genetic marker? (iv) Why is mitochondrial DNA hypermutable in animals, and why more in some species than in others? (v) How should we deal with phylogenetic conflicts between genes in phylogenomic reconstructions?
