Host-symbiont /Host parasite interactions: I am very interested in studying the different types of interactions happening between organisms, from symbiosis to parasitism.

Evolution of adaptive traits: My other main interest is to understand how organism can evolve traits allowing them to tolerate difficult conditions, and to investigate on the different trade-off that can possibly result from those adaptations.
