Research interests

I am mainly interested in microorganisms that are important in agriculture.
I have been working for more than a year on morels (Morchella sp.) in order to better understand their life cycle, their hybridization potential and their cultivation.
For my master's work, I am mainly studying the genetics of morels, especially with regard to sexual reproduction.
