Research themes:
I study the structure and the functioning of coastal ecosystems, particularly trophic relationships between primary producers (e. g. benthic microalgae) and primary consumers (macrofauna, meiofauna). I focus on the role of quantity, quality and availability of food sources on functioning of food webs. I also study flows of organic matter in the continent-ocean continuum to determine how variations of these flows can affect the functioning of coastal ecosystems.
