Chloé Larose


My research interests are mainly about evolutionary biology and ecology.
After deepened my knowledge in animal ecology and entomology, I decided to work in a theoretical context of evolution, and population studies. I am very interested in reproductive and genetic systems in animals, and the theoretical context of my PhD project, allows me to link these various aspects of science that interest me greatly.
