I am a theoretician in evolutionary ecology. I investigate with mathematical models how demographic dynamics, intra- and interspecific interactions influence the evolution of life-history traits, and reciprocally.

I have worked on topics ranging from the evolution of specialization, to the evolution of host defense in host-parasite interactions. A central, although not exclusive, goal in my research is to determine the influence of spatial structure and heterogeneity on the maintenance of diversity and on the evolution of life-history traits. A characteristic of my research is the diversity of subjects I have tackled, the variety of methods I use, and my wish to bridge the gaps between existing frameworks.
