Book published!

The book « Quantitative Genetics in the Wild » (Charmantier, Garant & Kruuk, 2014) is out! Go check it out!

 
I am a Biology PhD student working at the Laboratoire d’Écologie Alpine in Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, France). My PhD project is supervised by Oscar E. Gaggiotti and Irène Till-Bottraud.

General research interests

My research interests lie in developing and applying statistical methods in the context of studying micro-evolution in wild populations. In order to do this, my projects mainly require Bayesian inference. Currently, I work in the context of population genomics and quantitative genetics.

Past researches

My past research include mostly methodological work on (i) phylogenetic comparative methods to incorporate phylogenetic uncertainty and intra-specific variability, and (ii) comparison of methods to estimate the heritability depending on the nature of the phenotypic trait (Normal Vs Binary) and on different natures of confounding effects.

Regarding this last work, I published a tutorial on how to estimate the heritability, using the MCMCglmm package on R.
