Research topics
-  Study of genetic kinship in ancient or remote human populations
-  Analysis of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data in the study of ancient or remote human populations
-  Models of the structure and dynamics of ancient or remote human groups
-  Population genetics and peopling dynamics of the Yakut people of Siberia

Current research
My doctoral work, under the direction of Professor Christine Keyser, is focused on conceiving and implementing statistical methods that will permit the identification of population dynamics and complex kinship in ancient graves and necropolises, especially when these populations are not directly comparable to modern reference populations. This multi-marker approach, combined with models of structure that include social and cultural influences, will allow us to extrapolate population structure from kinship inferences.
This work is part of a greater effort to contribute to the analysis and description of the origins of the diversity of human populations, in spatial, temporal and phylogenetic terms. Within the AMIS Laboratory, my contribution has mostly concerned Mongolian and Siberian populations, with a particular interest for the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in Eastern Russia.

Curriculum and research experience
I majored from the University of Montpellier (UM2) with a Bachelor of Science specialised in Population Dynamics and Palaeontology after two years at the University of Caen (Normandy) focused on Evolutionary Biology, Agricultural Practices and Ethology. Study for my master’s degree took place at the University of Bordeaux (Physical Anthropology and Prehistory) and at Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse (Anthropology, Genetics and Human Peopling Dynamics). I have taught English at all levels since 2009 and have obtained my certification as a secondary school teacher (CAPES) in 2014.
Parallel to and included in my education at university, I interned at the Institute for Evolutionary Sciences of Montpellier (Statistical Models of Reproduction and Selection in South-African Fynbos plants), the Natural History Museum in Bordeaux (Photography and Inventory of Mammalian Quaternary Fossils) and the Institute of Legal Medicine in Strasbourg (Kinship and Population Structure in Yakut Archaeo-Anthropological data), where I am currently engaged in doctoral work.
